FMCSA uses SAFETYNET to share records maintained in the Motor Carrier Information Management System (MCMIS) with FMCSA field offices and state and local law enforcement officials. These records contain information on companies and drivers of commercial motor vehicles and shipping and freight-forwarding companies registered with FMCSA. In addition, some state and or local law enforcement entities may maintain complaint records in their local versions of SAFETYNET, however those records are not federal records and are outside the bounds of the Department’s Privacy Act notices. FMCSA does not maintain complaint information in SAFETYNET. MCMIS is the authoritative system of records for these records and is covered by the Privacy Act system of records notice DOT/FMCSA–001, Motor Carrier Information Management System. All records in SAFETYNET are inputs to or duplicate copies of MCMIS records subject to the DOT/FMCSA–001 system of records notice, therefore a separate notice is not required. Records transmitted to MCMIS via SAFETYNET and the authoritative copy received from MCMIS will continue to be updated on a daily basis. The rescindment of this notice ensures that the Department applies the fair information practice principles and Privacy Act protections afforded by the MCMIS notice in a consistent manner. khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SYSTEM NAME AND NUMBER: DOT/FMCSA 006, SAFETYNET.

This legislative framework is commonly referred to as the ‘‘Bank Secrecy Act’’ (‘‘BSA’’).1 The Secretary of the Treasury has delegated to the Director of FinCEN the authority to implement, administer, and enforce compliance with the BSA and associated regulations.2 Pursuant to this authority, FinCEN may issue regulations requiring financial institutions to keep records and file reports that ‘‘have a high degree of usefulness in criminal, tax, or regulatory investigations or proceedings, or in the conduct of intelligence or counterintelligence activities, including analysis, to protect against international terrorism.’’ 3 Additionally, FinCEN is authorized to impose regulations to maintain procedures to ensure compliance with the BSA and FinCEN’s implementing regulations, and to guard against money laundering, which includes imposing on financial institutions customer due diligence requirements within the anti-money laundering (‘‘AML’’) program requirements.4 Under 31 CFR 1010.230 covered financial institutions 5 are required to establish and maintain written procedures that are reasonably designed to identify and verify beneficial owners of new accounts opened by legal entity customers and to include such procedures in their AML programs.

Covered financial institutions must also maintain a record of the identifying information obtained, and a description of any document relied on, of any nondocumentary methods and results of any measures undertaken, and the resolutions of substantive discrepancies. These requirements will assist law enforcement in financial investigations, advance counterterrorism and broader national security interests, improve financial institutions’ ability to assess and mitigate risk, help prevent evasion of targeted financial sanctions, facilitate tax compliance, enhance financial transparency of legal entities, and advance U.S. compliance with international standards and commitments.
