Error Resolution Under Reg E: Implementing Policies and Practices to Avoid Mistakes
Increased debit card usage has led to increased exposure to unauthorized activity. In this session, we will address what actually constitutes an error under the regulation, what you need to do to comply with investigation requirements, and how to avoid mistakes during the error resolution process.
Consumers appreciate the convenience of conducting transactions electronically. This increased ease of access also exposes them, and you as their financial institution, to elevated exposure to account compromise and card fraud. Additional fraud has led to increased error resolution claims. In each of the last several years, examiners have cited Reg E errors in their top five regulatory issues during compliance exams.
In this session, we will detail how to avoid Reg E violations cited by examiners. We will review the specific error resolution requirements of Reg E, discuss procedural best practices, and provide tips on documenting your investigation. Among its provisions, Regulation E limits consumer liability for unauthorized transfers and promulgates procedures for the resolution of errors alleged by consumers, including unauthorized and fraudulent ACH and card transactions. We will detail how to review your error resolution process, including how your audit procedures can help mitigate risk for both the accountholder and your institution.
