Webinar - Regulation E Series: Auditing for Reg E Compliance
Wednesday, September 18, 2019, 03:00pm - 04:30pm

Regulation E is one of the most important regulations governing deposit operations. It establishes the rights, liabilities, and responsibilities of all participants in the electronic fund transfer systems. Everyone knows that Reg E applies to ATM and debit card transactions, but Reg E is so much more. It covers all types of electronic fund transfers such as ACH direct deposit, electronic bill pay, online banking, and mobile banking. Reg E also contains the disclosures required for prepaid and gift cards and restricts the related fees and expiration dates.
