The federal banking agencies, along with the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, are holding two nationwide conference calls. The Office of Foreign Assets Control will also participate in these events.
The attached Outreach Fact Sheet provides the information necessary to electronically register for the date of choice. Registration will open on August 21, 2006, and close on September 6, 2006.
The conference calls will focus on the overall changes to the Bank Secrecy Act/Anti-Money Laundering (BSA/AML) Examination Manual (Manual) released by the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) on July 28, 2006, and updates to the corresponding online FFIEC BSA/AML InfoBase.
Banking organizations are encouraged to participate in these voluntary sessions. The agenda for each call is identical and includes an open question and answer period.
The revised Manual is located on the FFIEC BSA/AML InfoBase at: http://www.ffiec.gov/bsa_aml_infobase/default.htm
