The Federal Reserve Board is proposing amendment to subpart A of Regulation J to provide for the rights and obligations of sending banks, paying banks, returning banks, and Reserve Banks in connection with collection of substitute checks and items that have been converted to electronic form.  The proposed changes would ensure that Regulation J covers the new check processing service options that the Reserve Banks plan to offer when the Check Clearing of the 21st Century Act becomes effective on October 28, 2004.
