CU Digest Examines the Rules
When do credit unions need to use the National Credit Union Administration’s (NCUA) official "advertising statement" or display the agency's official sign?
Knowing when, where, and how to use NCUA’s official statement and sign can be confusing.
“Advertisement,” as used in Part 740, means “a commercial message, in any medium, that is designed to attract public attention or patronage to a product or business.”
In 2011, NCUA amended certain provisions of its official advertising statement rule, housed in Part 740 of its Rules and Regulations. The mandatory compliance date for this rule change went into effect Jan. 1, 2012.
