Do you know about the BSA update trifecta? There were three updates to the BSA exam manual in 2021. Do those additions to the already hefty set of BSA regulations leave you wanting for answers? This is the update you need to ensure your program is compliant and will pass the next exam.The BSA exam manual was updated three times in 2021, most recently on December 1, 2021. While the FFIEC press release said the updates are not “new” requirements, they provide critical insight into the priorities for BSA exams. Is your BSA/AML program adequate and will it pass the next exam? The December 1st update added a new introductory section. Additional changes were made to:

  • Charities and Nonprofit Organizations
