Title: Section 6101. Establishment of National Exam and Supervision Priorities 

FinCEN intends to issue a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) as part of the establishment of national exam and supervision priorities. The proposed rule implements Section 6101(b) of the Anti-Money Laundering Act of 2020 (AML Act), enacted into law as part of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2021 (NDAA), that requires the Secretary of the Treasury (Secretary) to issue and promulgate rules for financial institutions to carry out the government-wide anti-money laundering and countering the financing of terrorism priorities (AML/CFT Priorities). The proposed rule: (i) incorporates a risk assessment requirement for financial institutions; (ii) requires financial institutions to incorporate AML/CFT Priorities into risk-based programs; and (iii) provides for certain technical changes. Once finalized, this proposed rule will affect all financial institutions subject to regulations under the Bank Secrecy Act and have AML/CFT program obligations.
