Rulemaking Proposals

Proposals concerning Board regulations codified in the Code of Federal Regulations

Regulation V: Identity Theft Red Flags [R-1484]

Proposal to amend the Board's Identity Theft Red Flags rule, which implements section 615(e) of the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA). The Red Flag Program Clarification Act of 2010 (Clarification Act) added a definition of "creditor" in FCRA section 615(e) that is specific to section 615(e). Accordingly, the proposed rule would amend the definition of "creditor" in the Identity Theft Red Flags rule to reflect the definition of that term as added by the statute. The proposed rule would also update a cross-reference in the Identity Theft Red Flags rule to reflect a statutory change in rulemaking authority.
