BSA AML Compliance

Looking for a partner who understands BSA requirements?

Relieve the burden of BSA AML regulations and create a strong anti-money laundering compliance program with CSI’s BSA AML audit tool.

Why is BSA AML Compliance Important?

In 1970, Congress passed the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA)—also known as the Anti-Money Laundering (AML) law. Since then, financial institutions like yours have been required to cooperate with government agencies to detect and prevent money laundering. But keeping up with government regulations can feel like a full-time job.

Relieve the burden of BSA AML regulations and create a strong anti-money laundering compliance program with CSI’s BSA AML audit tool.

Who’s on the Hook for BSA AML Compliance?

The BSA requires traditional banks, credit unions and thrifts, as well as non-bank financial institutions, securities dealers and money services businesses, to perform anti-money laundering checks and to keep specific records of events that could signal the occurrence of money laundering.

The Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) is the administrator of the BSA. And over the years, the BSA has been strengthened through subsequent anti-money laundering laws. This includes parts of USA PATRIOT Act compliance, which focus on money laundering in the form of terrorist financing.

What Does a BSA AML Compliance Program Look Like?

Compliant financial institutions implement superior reporting and record-keeping capabilities to ensure the appropriate information is being collected for all transactions. BSA/AML regulations require financial institutions to:

  • Keep records of cash purchases of negotiable instruments
  • File reports of cash transactions above $10,000
  • Report suspicious activity that might signify money laundering, tax evasion or other criminal activities
