The BSA/AML Examination Manual InfoBase provides guidance to examiners for carrying out Bank Secrecy Act/Anti-Money Laundering and Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) examinations. An effective BSA/AML compliance program requires sound risk management; therefore, the manual also provides guidance on identifying and controlling risks associated with money laundering and terrorist financing. The manual contains an overview of BSA/AML compliance program requirements, BSA/AML risks and risk management expectations, industry sound practices, and examination procedures.
The FFIEC Examiner Education Office created the FFIEC InfoBase, which is a vehicle that enables prompt delivery of introductory, reference, and educational training material on specific topics of interest to field examiners from the FFIEC member agencies. The IT Handbooks are updated and maintained electronically using the InfoBase vehicle.
