The FTC said members of Congress asked the agency to extend the deadline for the financial institutions and creditors it oversees. The extension by the FTC doesn’t affect other regulatory agencies which enforce the current identity theft Red Flags Rule.

There is pending legislation which proposes exemption from the identity theft Red Flags Rule for health care, accounting firms, legal firms with twenty of less employees (H.R. 3763).
