This week on the Compliance Blog: Supervisory guidance, BSA/AML initiatives, CCPA

complianceAs credit unions work to meet the needs of more than 122 million Americans during the coronavirus pandemic, NAFCU's award-winning Regulatory Compliance Team continues to keep credit unions informed with new posts on the Compliance Blog every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

Here’s a roundup of what's new on the Compliance Blog:

Interagency Proposed Rule Regarding Supervisory Guidance: In Monday's blog post, NAFCU Senior Regulatory Compliance Counsel David Park highlights a proposed interagency statement from September 2018 regarding the role of supervisory guidance. Most recently, the NCUA Board approved a proposal to codify a modified statement. The modified statement still notes that "supervisory guidance does not have the force and effect of law."

Will FinCEN’s Initiatives Really Make BSA/AML More Effective?: NAFCU Senior Regulatory Affairs Counsel Kaley Schafer details the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network's (FinCEN) recently proposed changes that could have widespread impact on how credit unions deal with everyday Bank Secrecy Act/anti-money laundering (BSA/AML) compliance. Schafer also encourages credit unions to share their feedback on BSA/AML compliance and the recent proposals with NAFCU as the association continues to advocate for relief measures.

CCPA 2.0: The California Privacy Rights Act: Earlier this month, the state of California passed Proposition 24, amending the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) to create the California Privacy Rights Act and more closely aligning it with the rights and obligations of the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation. In today's post, NAFCU Senior Regulatory Counsel Elizabeth LaBerge details the changes to the rule, including new requirements and definitions.
