The following links will take you to the applicable sections of the Massachusetts General Laws which address the supervision of electronic service providers.
Refer to 209 CMR 31.00 et seq., which addresses the establishment and operation of ATMs for depository institutions (banks and credit unions) and non-banks and for the protection of consumers in electronic fund transfers.
The following describes the procedures used to apply for approval to open or close an ATM or to provide EFT services:
The Division of Banks regulation 209 CMR 31.40 requires that all non-bank ATM providers seeking to operate ATMs in the Commonwealth must submit an application to provide electronic services. Pursuant to 209 CMR 31.02, a merchant is not considered to be a “non-bank ATM provider”. Therefore, all applications must be submitted by the entity that processes the electronic transactions (usually, the Independent Sales Organization). Applications submitted by merchants will be returned. Please be advised that operating an ATM without complying with 209 CMR 30.00 may result in in the initiation of enforcement action and/or the imposition of sanctions under M.G.L. c. 167B, §§ 20 through 22.
Annually, owner/operators of electronic branches located within the Commonwealth of Massachusetts must submit a list of all electronic branches in operation as of the close of business December 31 of the prior year. This year the Division is requiring that the information be submitted in electronic format, on a diskette or by e-mail, as well as on paper. This report, known as Schedule Q, is available for download in Microsoft Excel (.xls) format.
Upon completing the Schedule Q form, it should be emailed as an Excel attachment to: email@example.com
If you have any questions regarding the application procedure or the procedure for downloading or submitting Schedule Q, please leave your inquiry on the Division's EFT telephone line (617) 956-1500 Ext. 61479, and a Division representative will contact you.
