As a financial institution, complying with federal government regulations is a must. The Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) and Anti-Money Laundering (AML) laws prevent banks and other financial companies from becoming bystanders to fraud. Maintaining compliance can include independent BSA/AML reviews from third-party companies with industry experience. 

If you want to evaluate your company's risk and compliance, 10-D Compliance can help. We ensure you follow all necessary guidelines to prevent potential fines and charges. 

What Is BSA/AML Compliance? 

The U.S. Department of Treasury's Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) created the BSA/AML laws to prevent financial terrorism and laundering, especially within large financial institutions. Some BSA regulations banks must follow include:

  • Creating a system that ensures ongoing compliance.
  • Providing independent BSA/AML testing.
  • Designating a responsible individual for coordinating and monitoring day-to-day compliance.
  • Providing BSA/AML compliance training.

While there is no outline for audit frequency, undergoing the process every 12 to 18 months can help you maintain accurate records and prevent information gaps. BSA/AML penalties include hefty fines, removal from banking institutions, and prison sentences. 

About Our Service

10-D identifies and documents potential BSA/AML issues according to the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFEIC). We align our process with the Patriot Act and the Department of Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) requirements. 

What We Do

We tailor each audit to your risk profile and needs. During all audits, we will:

  • Evaluate your BSA/AML compliance program, including policies, procedures, and processes.
  • Review your risk assessment compared to your risk profile.
  • Evaluate management's efforts to resolve past audit or exam violations and deficiencies.
  • Review your suspicious activity monitoring systems.
  • Assess your process for identifying and reporting suspicious activity.
  • Perform tests based on risk to evaluate compliance with reporting and recordkeeping obligations.

Once we evaluate your system, we promptly deliver a fully accessible report in a universal language. This process gives your institution an overall rating and points to any compliance issues or potential infractions.
