Registration for BSA Conference Call Closes September 6
WASHINGTON - The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency advised national banks today that registration for two conference calls on the revised FFIEC Bank Secrecy Act/Anti-Money Laundering (BSA/AML) Examination Manual will close on September 6.
The conference calls are sponsored by the five federal banking agencies and the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN). The Office of Foreign Assets Control will also be participating in these calls.
The banking industry calls will be held September 13 and 14, 2006. All calls will be from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon (EDT).
Bankers can register by going to this web page: http://www.ffiec.gov/pdf/bsa_registration.pdf, which is on the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council Internet site.
The conference calls will focus on the overall changes to the Bank Secrecy Act/Anti-Money Laundering Examination Manual released by the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) on July 28, 2006, and updates to the corresponding online FFIEC BSA/AML InfoBase.
Examiners and banking organizations are encouraged to participate in these voluntary sessions. The agenda for each call is identical and includes an open question and answer session.
