(b) Payment instrument account services.
In determining the fees for services provided under this part, a Bank must take into account all direct and indirect costs of providing the services.

(c) Review and publication.
The Finance Board shall from time to time and at least annually review the cost of capital adjustment factor and review prices for services authorized in this part for compliance with the principles set forth in paragraphs (a) and (b) of this section. All prices for Bank services authorized in this part will be published annually in the Federal Register, except those for fees charged to an applicant for draws made by a beneficiary under a standby letter of credit.
