TREAS/FINCEN RIN: 1506-AB36 Publication ID: Spring 2022 
Title: Amendments of the Definition of Broker or Dealer in Securities (Crowd Funding) 

FinCEN is finalizing amendments to the regulatory definitions of "broker or dealer in securities" under the regulations implementing the Bank Secrecy Act. The changes are intended to expand the current scope of the definitions to include funding portals. In addition, these amendments would require funding portals to implement policies and procedures reasonably designed to achieve compliance with all of the Bank Secrecy Act requirements that are currently applicable to brokers or dealers in securities. The rule to require these organizations to comply with the Bank Secrecy Act regulations is intended to help prevent money laundering, terrorist financing, and other financial crimes.

NOTE: This is not a new requirement; it replaces RINs 1506-AB24 and 1506-AB29.
