Regulation CC

New final amendments to Reg CC’s check collection and return provisions create a framework for electronic check collection and return and create new warranties for electronic checks. These amendments take effect July 1, 2018. Additional proposed amendments to Reg CC, published today in the Federal Register, would create a presumption in certain disputes that a substitute or electronic check has been altered rather than forged. The presumption is intended to clarify the burden of proof in these disputes. The deadline for public comment is August 1, 2017.
