FTC Announces Delay in Implementation of Red Flags Rule


The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) recently announced that it is postponing implementation of the Red Flags Rule until November 1, 2009, in order to provide businesses with more education about compliance with the Rule. This will include additional resources and guidance to clarify whether businesses are covered by the Rule and, if so, what they must do to comply.

The Red Flags Rule is an anti-fraud regulation. It was jointly issued by several federal agencies to implement sections 114 and 315 of the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act and is enforced by the FTC.
