Sales Practices, solicitations, advertising regulations adopted
The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency has posted the final version of consumer-protection regulations adopted by the OCC, FDIC, OTS, and Federal Reserve under the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act.
The regulations apply to retail sales practices, solicitations, advertising, and offers of insurance products and annuities by depository institutions or persons engaged in these activities at an office of the institution or on behalf of the institution. A large percentage of all annuities are sold at or by banks, so the rules will have broad effect.
In the case of a conflict with the Interagency Statement on Retail Sales of Nondeposit Investment Products, the new rules will control. The new rules, which take effect on April 1, 2001, are available online in PDF format at http://www.occ.treas.gov/fr/part14.pdf
