I think this is a matter of banking practice rather than law, and I
doubt whether it is touched by regulations (except perhaps tangentially
by anti-money-laundering rules about "identifying" customers).

The place to look would be one of the professional bankers' educational
books - I've long forgotten most of their titles (I remember "Byles on
Bills", but it's probably irrelevant even if it could be found).
