Circular
Board Announces Restructuring of the San Francisco Fed’s Check Processing Operations and Amendments to Appendix A of Regulation CC
June 20, 2007
Circular No. 11870

The Federal Reserve Board has announced amendments to Appendix A of Regulation CC that reflect the restructuring of the Federal Reserve's check processing operations in the Twelfth District.

Appendix A provides a routing number guide that helps depository institutions determine the maximum permissible hold periods for most deposited checks. As of August 18, 2007, the head office of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco no longer will process checks, and banks currently served by that office will be reassigned to the Los Angeles branch office of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco. As a result of these changes, some checks deposited in the affected regions that currently are nonlocal checks will become local checks that are subject to shorter permissible hold periods.

See press release for full details.
