Comment on BSA definition changes sought by CUNA
WASHINGTON (1/4/13)--The Credit Union National Association (CUNA) is asking credit unions to detail any concerns they may have regarding proposed changes to the definitions of "funds transfer" and "transmittal of funds" under the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA).

The Federal Reserve Board and the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) proposed the definition changes last November. The new definitions are intended to maintain the current scope of the terms in light of changes to the Electronic Fund Transfer Act that otherwise would result in certain currently covered transactions being excluded from BSA requirements.

In its Comment Call, CUNA asks credit unions to share their views by Jan. 14. Comments are due to the agencies by Jan. 25.
