Technical Amendments to Rule 17a-8: Financial Recordkeeping and Reporting of Currency and Foreign Transactions
Document Number: 2011-4694
Type: Rule
Date: 2011-03-02
Agency: Securities and Exchange Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The Securities and Exchange Commission (``Commission'') is adopting technical amendments to Rule 17a-8 under the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934 (``Exchange Act'') to update a reference within the rule to the implementing regulations of the Currency and Foreign Transactions Reporting Act of 1970, as amended (commonly referred to as the Bank Secrecy Act or the ``BSA''). The BSA's implementing regulations are promulgated and administered by the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (``FinCEN''), a bureau within the Department of the Treasury. The reference to the BSA's implementing regulations in Rule 17a-8 is being updated in response to FinCEN's reorganization of those regulations into a new chapter of the Code of Federal Regulations (``CFR'').
