Question: Do Reg CC exception holds apply to check deposits drawn on foreign banks?
Answer: If the check is actually drawn on a foreign bank not located in the US, it would not be considered a “check” covered by Reg. CC. Therefore, would not be applicable to Reg CC and you can put a hold on it for as long as it takes to clear. It’d mainly be a policy issue. Whatever time you feel is reasonable based on the surrounding circumstances. http://www.ecfr.gov/cgi-bin/text-idx?SID=d94084963c8d12622e69297c7504a050&mc=true&node=pt12.3.229&rgn=div5
