Financial Crimes Enforcement Network; Amendment Regarding Financial Institutions Exempt from Establishing Anti-Money Laundering Programs
The Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (``FinCEN'') is amending the provision in its regulations that defers, for certain categories of financial institutions, the application of the anti-money laundering program requirements in section 352 of the Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism (``USA PATRIOT'') Act of 2001. Two of the categories of financial institutions specifically exempted from having to establish an anti-money laundering program subsequently have been required by regulation to establish such programs, and this rulemaking will amend the regulations to reflect those changes.
Agency Information Collection Activities: Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request
The OCC, as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, invites the general public and other Federal agencies to comment on a continuing information collection, as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a respondent is not required to respond to, an information collection unless it displays a currently valid Office of Management and Budget (OMB) control number. The OCC is soliciting comment concerning its information collection titled, ``Assessment of Fees12 CFR 8.'' The OCC is also giving notice that it has submitted the collection to OMB for review.
