AML compliance, or anti-money laundering compliance, is a requirement found under the Bank Secrecy Act. Under the regulations, businesses are required to create an AML compliance program. The program must be in writing and approved by a senior manager, must be reasonably designed, must be independently reviewed and tested, must include ongoing training for impacted personnel, and must include risk-based procedures for conducting ongoing customer due diligence.
Having an AML program independently reviewed is a requirement of an AML compliance program that is enforced by the U.S. Department of Treasury’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN). The frequency and scope of an independent review must be reasonably aligned with the particular risks that the money-service business faces related to money-laundering and the financing of terrorist activities, as well as other financial crimes. Failure to conduct independent reviews is a clear violation of the BSA and can result in penalties for the business in violation.
