This webinar will address two issues regarding the fifth pillar of the new customer due diligence rules. First will be an overview of changes that mandate additional procedures to “understand the nature and purpose” of the legal entity relationship to develop a “reasonable” risk profile. The second will be how to conduct ongoing monitoring to identify and report suspicious transactions and, on a risk basis, maintain and update accountholder information. FinCEN provided ample lead time to navigate these substantial changes to policies, procedures, forms, and effective monitoring processes. Regulators will expect financial institutions to have an implementation plan well in advance of the May 11, 2018, effective date to meet these challenges. (Note: The BSA rules use the term “customer.” This has the same meaning as a “member” of a credit union.)
