- A new section titled "Bulk Shipments of Currency";
- Substantial revisions to the section on Enterprise-Wide BSA/AML Compliance programs, which is now titled "BSA/AML Compliance Program Structures"; and
- Enhancements to the "Suspicious Activity Reporting" section addressing identification, research, and reporting of suspicious activity.
