On September 28th, the OCC published a Bulletin summarizing refinements that it has made to its guidance regarding how examiners consider Bank Secrecy Act/Anti-Money Laundering examination findings in the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council's Uniform Rating Systems and the OCC's risk assessment system for banks. The refinements reflect the OCC's policy that weaknesses in a bank's BSA/AML program are serious safety and soundness concerns that require management's prompt attention.
