WASHINGTON — The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has finalized revisions to its international money transfer rule that will provide certain remittances with a longer exemption.

The agency's remittance rule requires money transfer providers to disclose certain estimates to consumers about the costs of a remittance. But the revisions, finalized Friday, are primarily meant to extend an exemption for remittances offered by banks and credit unions in cases where a cost estimate cannot be determined because of reasons outside an institution's control. Such reasons could include fluctuating prices set by third parties.
