On January 21, 2015, the FDIC issued a proposed rule amending regulations related to “Fair Credit Reporting.” The three proposed amendments are as follows: (i) rescinding and removing the provisions of FDIC’s Part 334; (ii) rescinding and removing 12 CFR Part 391 Subpart C and amending 12 CFR Part 334 of the FDIC’s existing Rules and Regulations; and (iii) amending the definition of “creditor” in the Red Flag Identity Theft rule to implement the Red Flag Program Clarification Act of 2010. Overall, the revisions would streamline FDIC rules and eliminate unnecessary regulations.
