BNY Mellon Provides Test Drive Access to Global Payments Disclosure Solution

Product of collaboration and pilot testing with client banks, online solution helps clients address the Consumer Financial Protect Bureau (CFPB)'s most recent Regulation E rules for remittance transfer disclosures under Section 1073 of Dodd Frank

Test driving the solution gives banks a jump-start on October 28, 2013 compliance deadline

NEW YORK, June 13, 2013 — BNY Mellon, the global leader in investment management and investment services, today announced that its Treasury Services business is providing test drive access to its On-Line Global Payments Disclosure Solution.

The result of collaboration and pilot testing with client banks, BNY Mellon's innovative remittance transfer disclosure solution has been updated since its initial launch several months ago in response to the most recent set of Regulation E requirements under Section 1073 of Dodd Frank announced by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) at the end of April. BNY Mellon is providing test drive access to the platform to give clients time to integrate the solution into their work flow well in advance of the October 28, 2013 deadline for Regulation E compliance.

The Regulation E requirements mandate disclosure of related fees, including FX conversion fees, to U.S. consumers whenever they originate a cross-border remittance payment. Remittance transfer providers must also comply with requirements for resolving inquiries from consumers related to remittance transactions. BNY Mellon's Web-based Global Payments Disclosure Solution helps clients generate a fully formatted disclosure with prepayment, receipt and combined disclosure options that can be given directly to consumers. It does not dictate how BNY Mellon's bank clients handle the foreign exchange portion of the cross-border payment, and allows them to transmit remittance transactions to BNY Mellon using a variety of front-end platforms.

"One of the unique challenges we faced in developing this solution was the need to move forward on the technology front while at the same time monitoring and participating in the development of a new regulation," said Susan Skerritt, executive vice president and global head of business strategy and market solutions for BNY Mellon's Treasury Services group. "To meet that challenge, we put a lot of emphasis on communication and collaboration with all of the stakeholders involved. Giving our bank clients the opportunity to test drive a solution that reflects the latest technology and regulatory developments shows how successful that approach has been. It also demonstrates how client focus drives our approach to innovation — test driving will give our bank clients a great way to jump-start their Regulation E compliance efforts."
