- The FFIEC has released the 2007 version of the BSA/AML Examination Manual.
- The revised manual reflects the ongoing commitment of the federal banking agencies and the
Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) to provide current and consistent guidance on
risk-based policies, procedures and processes for banking organizations to comply with the BSA
and safeguard operations from money laundering and terrorist financing.
- The manual has been updated to further clarify supervisory expectations and incorporate
regulatory changes since the manual's 2006 release. The revisions also reflect feedback from the
banking industry and examination staff.
- New and revised sections of the manual are identified in the table of contents by a 2007
revision date and in the attached Interagency Transmittal Letter.
- The revised manual can be accessed from the FFIEC BSA/AML InfoBase at: http://www.ffiec.gov/bsa_aml_infobase/default.htm.
