Request for comment on Regulation Z.
The Board periodically reviews each of its regulations to update them, if necessary. In December 2004 the Board published an initial ANPR to commence a comprehensive review of the open-end credit rules and to solicit comment on a variety of issues relating to the format of open-end credit disclosures, the content of disclosures, and the substantive protections provided under the regulation. The comment period closed in March 2005.
In April 2005 the Bankruptcy Act was enacted, which contains several amendments to TILA, including provisions requiring new disclosures for open-end credit accounts. The Board plans to implement the amendments as part of its review of Regulation Z and is publishing this second ANPR to reopen and extend the public comment period. Combining the two rulemakings will allow the Board to coordinate the changes to the TILA disclosures and should impose less regulatory burden on creditors.
Comments were to be received on or before December 16, 2005.
