On March 28, the CFPB published a final rule to remove from Regulation Z a limitation on fees charged prior to credit card account opening. Effective immediately, the rule amends a restriction adopted by the Federal Reserve Board in April 2011, which expanded the 2009 Credit CARD Act fee limitation on certain fees charged during the first year after the account is opened to include fees charged  prior to account opening. The CFPB rule eliminates the limitations on fees charged prior to account opening, and covers only those fees charged during the first year after account opening. The rule responds to a legal challenge to restricting the amount of fees charged prior to account opening, which resulted in a court issuing a preliminary injunction to halt the implementation of the Federal Reserve Board’s broader application of the fee limit.
