Title: Section 6314. Updating Whistleblower Incentives and Protection 

FinCEN intends to issue a notice of proposed rulemaking to establish a whistleblower award program for eligible individuals that provide information regarding certain violations of the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) and U.S. economic sanctions. The proposed regulations would implement section 6314 of the Anti-Money Laundering Act of 2020 (AML Act) and the Anti-Money Laundering Whistleblower Improvement Act (AML Whistleblower Improvement Act), enacted into law as part of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2021 (NDAA) and the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2023, respectively. Pursuant to the proposed regulations, potential whistleblowers would voluntarily provide information regarding violations to FinCEN, the Department of Justice, or a whistleblower’s employer.
