FinCEN will hold an informational Webinar on Tuesday, May 8, 2012, to discuss the updated technical specifications for FinCEN’s new Currency Transaction Report (CTR) and Suspicious Activity Report (SAR) as well as the recently released specifications for FinCEN’s new Designation of Exempt Person (DOEP) report. This Webinar is intended specifically for the information technology (IT) professionals who will be responsible for integrating the technical specifications for these new FinCEN reports into batch filing processes; these may be vendors of batch filing programs as well as in-house IT staff of financial institutions. We recommend that attendees review the technical specifications prior to the Webinar and document any specific questions for discussion.

  • Overview of the E-Filing specifications for FinCEN’s new CTR, SAR, and DOEP.
  • Overview of BSA E-Filing Test site and Testing Process.
  • FAQs about the E-Filing specifications.

Please note: FinCEN will be offering a separate Webinar at a later date for financial institution employees and compliance professionals with BSA-related responsibilities; this future Webinar will discuss the BSA E-Filing process for the new CTR and SAR.
