Regulation CC (Expedited Funds Availability): Understand and Implement

Tuesday, January 23, 2018 • 2:00 - 4:00 p.m. ET

2.5 CRCM, 2.5 CAFP

It has been over a decade since the federal agencies modified Regulation CC. After several years of proposals and public comment, the Federal Reserve Board finalized amendments on May 31, 2017, to become effective on July 1, 2018.

The amendments advance efforts to make the check system fully electronic to "reflect the virtually all-electronic check collection and return environment and to encourage all depositary banks to receive, and paying banks to send, returned checks electronically." For the first time, Reg CC will directly recognize the interbank exchange and return of electronic images. The amendments also will establish new definitions, warranties, and indemnities which banks must understand in order to implement operational and compliance changes.

The amendments impact check collection and operations (Subpart A - Definitions, Subpart C - Collection of Checks, and Subpart D - Substitute Checks). They do not change Subpart B - Availability of Funds and Disclosure of Funds Availability Policies.

This 2-hour Briefing will be provided by a panel of experts who have been closely involved in the banking industry's input into the amendments over the last few years. The presentation will explain the amendments and discuss implementation issues for banks and the check system.

This Briefing will focus on:

  • Expeditious return requirements
  •  Coverage of / warranties for electronic checks / electronic returned checks
  • New RDC indemnity for remotely deposited checks
  • New ECI indemnity for check-like payments that are created electronically


  • Nessa Feddis, Senior Vice President and Deputy Chief Counsel (moderator)
  • Thomas Fox, Partner, Schwartz & Ballen LLP
  • Jenny Johnson, Director, ECCHO
