Financial institutions are required to be compliant with BSA rules and regulations. Such compliance needs to be well documented and consistent to ensure financial institutions avoid BSA violations and implications. Financial institutions’ BSA Programs must have adequate policies and procedures, comprehensive risk assessments, monitoring programs, training programs, qualified employees overseeing the BSA daily operations and independent testing programs. To ensure the BSA program is comprehensive, BSA/AML checklists can be used for evaluation and monitoring, as well as a tool for identifying areas that must be addressed. Effective BSA / AML checklists will ensure that all these components are not only implemented but are appropriate, adequate and thorough to meet the BSA rules and regulations and the needs of the financial institution. Having a strong BSA program will ensure that financial institutions are proactive in preventing BSA violations occurring and implementing corrective action for BSA issues or implications that may be identified in the BSA program.
