TREAS/FINCEN RIN: 1506-AB48 Publication ID: Spring 2021 
Title: ●Threshold for the Requirement to Collect, Retain, and Transmit Information on Funds Transfers and Transmittals of Funds That Begin or End Outside the United States 

In October 2020, the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System and FinCEN (collectively, the "Agencies") issued a proposed rule to modify the threshold in the rules implementing the Bank Secrecy Act requiring financial institutions to collect and retain information on certain funds transfers and transmittals of funds. The modification would reduce this threshold from $3,000 for certain funds transfers and transmittals of funds. At the same time, FinCEN likewise issued a proposal to reduce from $3,000 the threshold in the rule requiring financial institutions to transmit to other financial institutions in the payment chain information on certain funds transfers and transmittals of funds. The public comment period for the proposed rulemaking expired on November 27, 2020. The Agencies are working to develop a rule in light of the comments received from the public.
