NCUA is soliciting comments concerning the Suspicious Activity Report (SAR). As Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) administrator, the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) transitioned from a system originally designed for collecting industry specific paper forms to a modernized information technology environment centered on electronic reporting.

FinCEN’s objective is to have one electronically-filed dynamic and interactive BSA–SAR that will be used by all filing institutions to report suspicious activity as of April 1, 2013. There are no proposed changes to the regulatory reporting criteria for information collection. Federally insured credit unions will continue to follow the regulation, interagency guidance, and filing instructions to determine when a report should be filed and what information should be included on the report. Written comments should be received on or before September 30, 2013.

The interactive BSA–SAR includes several new data fields and introduces data fields from the SARs of other industries. On March 29, 2012, FinCEN released guidance 1 titled, ‘‘Filing FinCEN’s new Currency Transaction Report and Suspicious Activity Report’’. This guidance clarified expectations and notes that FinCEN is making available additional and more specific data elements (i.e., characterizations of suspicious activity and types of financial services) as a more efficient way to bring information about suspicious activity to the attention of FinCEN and law enforcement. The guidance clarified the addition of new and expanded data elements; however, the guidance does not create an expectation that financial institutions will revise internal programs, or develop new programs, to capture SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 1 http://www.fincen.gov/statutes_regs/guidance/ pdf/FIN-2012-G002.pdf.

injunctive relief against the owners and operators of the Gateway and 
Haverhill Facilities. The Haverhill Coke Company, LLC, formerly known 
as the Haverhill North Coke Company, is an owner and operator of the 
Haverhill Facility along with SunCoke Energy, Inc. (``SunCoke'')

this action relating to the Haverhill Facility under Chapter 3745 of 
the Ohio Revised Code (``ORC''), and the rules adopted thereunder, and

Haverhill Defendants operated the Haverhill Facility in excess of 
bypass venting limits specified in their Prevention of Significant 
Deterioration permits, and that the Haverhill Defendants failed to 
comply with emissions monitoring and reporting requirements.
    The Consent Decree would require (1) Installation of process 
equipment to provide redundancy that will allow hot coking gases to be 
routed to a pollution control device instead of vented directly to the 
atmosphere in the event of equipment downtime; (2) installation of 
continuous emissions monitoring systems for sulfur dioxide, at one 
bypass vent per process unit (two at the Haverhill Facility and one at 
the Gateway Facility); (3) payment of a civil penalty of $1.995 
million, of which $1.27 million will go to the United States, $575,000 
to the State of Illinois, and $150,000 to the State of Ohio; and (4) 
performance of a lead hazard abatement supplemental environmental 
project at a cost of $255,000 at the Gateway Facility.

Department of Justice announced its intention to receive comments 
relating to the Consent Decree for a period of thirty (30) days from 
the date of that publication. 78 Fed. Reg. 39,770 (July 2, 2013). That
