BSA/AML compliance is its own growth industry. Every year, including this one, brings changes in legal requirements and regulatory interpretations.
This year was ushered in with a major revision of the process for recognizing “exempt persons” who are not subject to currency transaction reporting. It eliminates the need for filing a Designation of Exempt Person form in some circumstances and the filing of biennial renewals as well.
In addition, general BSA/AML compliance concepts continue to evolve. Some key areas of emphasis include:
The reorganization and simplification of BSA regulations,
Enhancing formal BSA/AML/OFAC risk assessments,
Identifying and monitoring high risk customers,
Using the BSA/AML Examination Handbook as a compliance tool,
Recent SAR filing statistics, and
Proper SAR completion.
This full day seminar brings attendees current on both the basic technical requirements and the philosophies currently affecting on-site examinations. It is designed to be practical and focus on everyday issues connected to a BSA/AML compliance management effort.
The presentation is a comprehensive overview of BSA/AML compliance issues, but it focuses on recent developments too.
The program includes coverage of:
Reviewing and Updating Your Risk Assessment
Anti-Money Laundering programs (AMLs)
Customer Identification Programs (CIPs)
Due Diligence and Enhanced Due Diligence – What’s what?
Currency Transaction Reporting
Recent Changes to the CTR Filing Exemption Process
Introduction to OFAC Requirements
Introduction to Suspicious Activity Reporting including the revised SAR Form which is still pending
Why Attend this Seminar?
BSA is one of the few regulations where compliance is so critical it is classified as a “safety and soundness” issue.
Regulations require every bank to have an ongoing Bank Secrecy Act training program and examiners routinely ask for evidence of recent training – even from experienced BSA personnel.
SAR filing requirements are one of the most difficult compliance responsibilities your institution has
The program is designed for personnel who have responsibility for maintaining or auditing Bank Secrecy Act compliance efforts.
