FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: The FinCEN Regulatory Support Section at 1–800–767–2825, or electronically at frc@fincen.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Statutory and Regulatory Provisions The legislative framework generally referred to as the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) consists of the Currency and Financial Transactions Reporting Act of 1970, as amended by the Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act of 2001 (USA PATRIOT Act) (Public Law 107– 56) and other legislation. The BSA is codified at 12 U.S.C. 1829b, 12 U.S.C. 1951–1959, 31 U.S.C. 5311–5314 and 5316–5332, and notes thereto, with implementing regulations at 31 CFR Chapter X. The BSA authorizes the Secretary of the Treasury, inter alia, to require financial institutions to keep records and file reports that are determined to have a high degree of usefulness in criminal, tax, and regulatory matters, or PO 00000 Frm 00222 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 in the conduct of intelligence or counter-intelligence activities to protect against international terrorism, and to implement anti-money laundering (AML) programs and compliance procedures.1 Regulations implementing the BSA appear at 31 CFR Chapter X. The authority of the Secretary to administer the BSA has been delegated to the Director of FinCEN.2 Congress amended the BSA in 1988 to give the Secretary the authority to issue orders under 31 U.S.C. 5326 by passing Public Law 100–690, Title VI, § 6185(c). This provision was later amended to permit issuance of confidential orders, lengthen the effective period of orders to 180 days, cover transactions involving transfers of funds, and to clarify that orders can be issued upon reasonable grounds for concluding that additional requirements are necessary to carry out the purposes of the subtitle of which 31 U.S.C. 5326 is a part, or to prevent evasions thereof. See Public Law 102– 550, Title XV, § 1514; Public Law 107– 56, 353(d); Public Law 115–44, 275. Under 31 U.S.C. 5326(a), if the Secretary finds that reasonable grounds exist for concluding that additional recordkeeping and reporting are necessary to carry out the purpose of the BSA or to prevent evasions thereof, the Secretary may issue an order requiring any domestic financial institution or nonfinancial trade or business or group of domestic financial institutions or nonfinancial trades or businesses in a geographic area to obtain such information as the Secretary may describe in such order concerning certain transactions. The authority set forth in 31 U.S.C. 5326 to impose reporting and recordkeeping requirements is selfimplementing.3 Section 5326(a) generally requires domestic financial institutions or nonfinancial trades or businesses in a geographic area that receive an order to report, in the manner and to the extent specified in an order, information concerning any transaction in which such financial institution or nonfinancial trade or business is involved for the payment, receipt, or transfer of funds (as the Secretary may describe in such order). An order typically will include the following terms: (i) The dollar amount of 1 Section 358 of the USA PATRIOT Act added language expanding the scope of the BSA to intelligence or counter-intelligence activities to protect against international terrorism. 2 Treasury Order 180–01 (re-affirmed Jan. 14, 2020). 3 Although 31 U.S.C. 5326 does not mention the need for a prescribing regulation, a rule corresponding to section 5326 is set forth at 31 CFR 1010.370. Among other things, the rule defines a geographic area. E:\FR\FM\23DEN1.SGM 23DEN1
