The Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection, or CFPB, is proposing to amend Regulation Z, which implements the Truth In Lending Act, and the official interpretation to the regulation, which interprets the requirements of Regulation Z. Regulation Z generally limits the total amount of fees that a credit card issuer may require a consumer to pay with respect to an account, limiting fees to 25 percent of the credit limit in effect when the account is opened. Regulation Z currently states that this limitation applies prior to account opening and during the first year after account opening. The proposal requests comment on whether to amend Regulation Z to apply the limitation only during the first year after account opening.
