Transfer and Reorganization of Bank Secrecy Act Regulations
FinCEN proposes to move Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) regulations to a new chapter in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). The new chapter would contain the BSA regulations, which would generally be reorganized by financial industry. Moving the BSA regulations to a new chapter and organizing the chapter by financial industry would create a user- friendly way to find regulations applicable to a particular financial industry. This new organization within the new chapter also allows for the renumbering of the BSA regulations in a manner that would make it easier to find regulatory requirements than under the numbering system currently used in the existing regulations. FinCEN also proposes to make minor technical changes to the BSA regulations such as updating mailing addresses and points of contact.
