The Pulse electronic funds transfer network has launched a Debit Regulations Resource Center that will provide information on debit-related legislation, regulations and compliance matters, the Discover Financial Services unit announced Feb. 9.
The microsite is an extension of Pulse’s previous Durbin Amendment Resource Center, which served as a central hub for news and insights regarding debit card legislation, Pulse noted in a press release. With the Federal Reserve Board’s new debit-rate policy now in place, Pulse said it repurposed and redesigned the resource center to expand its focus to help participants respond to the changing debit market.
“We heard from many of our participants that they valued the convenience and comprehensiveness of this resource for debit-related legislative and regulatory news and information, and we believe that expanding the focus of the site will drive even greater value to our network participants,” Steve Sievert, Pulse senior vice president of communications and marketing, said in the release. “The Debit Regulations Resource Center is one more way for Pulse to provide guidance and insight to our clients.”
The relaunched resource center retains many of the same features designed to keep participants updated on the issues that affect their organizations. Those features include news, information, white papers, on-demand webinars, commentary and expert analysis from Pulse and other industry leaders.
The center also will feature best practices and engage independent subject matter experts to share their insights.
