The largest number of FAQs is 51 for Regulation W, followed by 21 FAQs on Regulation Y. These presented legal interpretations have been formulated over time in response to questions from institutions or members of the public regarding how to interpret specific provisions of the FED regulations, or how to apply the rules to particular situations and fact patterns. Each set includes significant existing interpretations of the regulation, including those found in FED orders, preambles to proposed and final rulemakings, letters to institutions, and other written and verbal guidance. Additional FAQs will be released periodically and posted on the FED website.
