Dodd–Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, Pub. L. No. 111–203, H.R. 4173 (July 21, 2010).
[T]he Dodd-Frank Act assigned the FTC new enforcement authority for payment cards by adding new Section 920 to EFTA. Among other things, the provision restricts practices related to debit and credit card transactions. For example, this provision addresses business-to-business relationships and interactions between merchants, networks, issuers, and acquirers in the payment card transaction process, and it restricts certain debit card interchange fees. Although this provision involves EFTA, it pertains to Regulation II rather than Regulation E. The FTC has responsibility for enforcing the new requirements and regulations for payment card networks and certain other non-bank entities, such as non-federally chartered credit unions.
