TREAS/FINCEN RIN: 1506-AB44 Publication ID: Spring 2021 
Title: Anti-Money Laundering Program Effectiveness 
Abstract:

On September 17, 2020, FinCEN issued an Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking that sought public comment on potential regulatory amendments to establish that all covered financial institutions subject to an anti-money laundering program requirement must maintain an "effective and reasonably designed" anti-money laundering program. Any such amendments would be expected to further clarify that such a program assesses and manages risk as informed by a financial institution's risk assessment, including consideration of anti-money laundering priorities to be issued by FinCEN consistent with Section 6101 of the Anti-Money Laundering Act of 2020; provides for compliance with Bank Secrecy Act requirements; and provides for the reporting of information with a high degree of usefulness to government authorities. The regulatory amendments under consideration are intended to modernize the regulatory regime to address the evolving threats of illicit finance, and provide financial institutions with greater flexibility in the allocation of resources, resulting in the enhanced effectiveness and efficiency of anti-money laundering programs.
