List of Banking Regulations and Other Government Regulations

As a bank, money services business, insurance company or organization in any other industry we serve, you’re required to meet federal regulations for financial institutions that mandate how your customers are treated, who you trade with and more. Failure to meet federal regulations like these can result in civil and criminal penalties, leading to costly fines and even jail time: 

  • Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act (FACTA)
    In addition to allowing consumers to request credit reports, this act contains guidelines to prevent identity theft and requires security around the disposal of consumer information.
  • Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN)
    FinCEN compliance regulations activate section 314(a) of the USA PATRIOT Act, giving law enforcement the power to request information from financial institutions connected to investigations.
  • Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA)
    GLBA compliance focuses on the security of consumers’ personal financial information by enforcing various rules that determine how financial institutions and related industries collect and protect confidential information.
  • Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC)
    OCC compliance mandates supervisory actions, and it issues rules and regulations related to investments, lending and other practices.
  • Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC)
    OFAC regulations implement the Specially Designated Nationals List (SDN List), which prohibits U.S. businesses from engaging in financial transactions with any parties identified on the SDN List. 
  • Regulation E
    The Electronic Fund Transfers Act (EFTA)—or Regulation E compliance—requires financial institutions to follow specific procedures when investigating consumer claims of electronic funds transfer errors.
    In response to the terrorist acts of 9/11, USA PATRIOT Act compliance requires financial institutions to meet regulatory guidelines when verifying the identity of customers opening accounts.
