Thank you for joining us for the Earthport webinar event! If you missed out on the live event, Dodd Frank’s Remittance Regs: Addressing 1073 with Minimal Disruption to Your Business is now available on demand. Click here to tune in to a replay of the June 19 webinar.
The webinar discusses how the new regulations will impact the cross-border consumer payments market and the institutions serving this business, and how those in the remittance business can best cope with the upcoming CFPB regs.
Dodd-Frank 1073 seeks to protect and inform consumers by providing greater transparency and predictability, relating to the cost and delivery of international payments. Under the final rules adopted by the CFPB, which go into effect February 2013, international remittance transfers from individuals in the United States must have clear and conspicuous disclosures about the price of a transfer, the amount of currency to be delivered to the recipient and the date the funds will become available.
