Some people might think that regulatory attention to the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) had decreased over the past couple of years, given other difficulties and areas of concern, such as fair lending, TRID, HMDA, and UDAP. Think again. With the safety and soundness of the entire industry the focus of news stories every day and many well-publicized enforcement actions, the regulators obviously haven't eased up.

These rules are still very close to being the #1 issue facing compliance officers. This is a timely topic, as we are now seeing the full implementation of the Beneficial Owner Information (BOI) rules, including the Treasury Department’s new registry, access to that registry, and impending rules on how to incorporate these requirements into banks’ Customer Due Diligence (CDD) programs.
