Banking Spectrum in Compliance, New York, What's New

New York State requires its financial institutions to adopt anti-money laundering programs, including customer identification and foreign asset controls. Prior to January 1, 2017, compliance with applicable federal requirements (Bank Secrecy Act, USA PATRIOT Act and OFAC) constitutes compliance with the state requirements under Parts 115 and 116 of the General Regulations of the Banking Board. The NYS Department of Financial Services (DFS) has adopted a risk-based anti-terrorism and anti-money laundering regulation that requires institutions to maintain programs to monitor and filter transactions for potential Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) and anti-money laundering (AML) violations and prevent transactions with sanctioned entities.
