- On May 1, 2007, FinCEN published the attached Federal Register notice announcing a delay in the implementation of the revised SAR-DI form, which was scheduled to become effective on June 30, 2007, and mandatory on December 31, 2007.
- The form is being revised to standardize it with SARs used by financial institutions in other industries, and to facilitate joint filing with other depository institutions.
- FinCEN will announce new effective and mandatory dates for the revised form in a future Federal Register notice.
- This announcement does not impact ongoing BSA filing requirements. Financial institutions should continue to report suspicious activity by using the current SAR-DI form.
