Regulation of the Central Bank of Russia No. 266-P of December 24, 2004 on the Issue of Bank Cards and on Operations Carried out Using Pay Cards

Introduces a new procedure of issue of bank cards on the territory of the Russian Federation by credit organisations and the particulars for carrying out operations with pay cards with the issuer being a credit organisation or legal entity not being a credit organisation.

The procedure shall not apply to the cards of issuers not being credit organisations intended for getting prepaid commodities (works, services, results of intellectual activities).

As compared to the earlier available Regulation of the Central Bank of Russia No. 23-P of April 9, 1998, the procedure is extended to include operations with overdraft pay cards and prepaid cards.

In case of an absence or insufficiency of monetary resources on the bank account, when the client commits operations using a pay card, the client may enjoy an overdraft feature within the limits envisaged in the bank account contract to commit the given payment operation in the presence of the appropriate condition in the bank account contract.

A prepaid card is intended for operations committed by its holder where the payments are made by the issuer credit organisation in its own name and confirms the right of claim of its holder to the issuer to pay for the commodities (works, services, results of intellectual activities) or hand out cash. When a natural person client commits operations using a prepaid card, the bank account contract (bank deposit contract) is not concluded.

The new Regulation does not contain provisions requiring registration of operations using bank cards in the accounting work of credit organisation. The Regulation lists the provisions pertaining to the issue of bank cards that must be included in the internal bank rules.

The Regulation must be published in the Herald of the Bank of Russia and shall enter into force from April 10, 2005.
