FinCEN Enforcement Actions for Violations of the Bank Secrecy Act

Metadata Updated: November 17, 2016

Under the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA), 31 U.S.C. 5311 et seq., and its implementing regulations at 31 C.F.R. Chapter X (formerly 31 C.F.R. Part 103), FinCEN may bring an enforcement action for violations of the reporting, recordkeeping, or other requirements of the BSA. FinCEN's Office of Enforcement evaluates enforcement matters that may result in a variety of remedies, including the assessment of civil money penalties. For example, civil money penalties may be assessed for recordkeeping violations under 31 C.F.R §1010.415 (formerly 31 C.F.R. §103.29), or for reporting violations for failing to file a currency transaction report (CTR) in violation of 31 C.F.R. §1010.311 (formerly 31 C.F.R. §103.22), a suspicious activity report (SAR) in violation of 31 C.F.R. § 1021.320 (formerly 31 C.F.R. §103.21), or a report of foreign bank and financial accounts (FBAR) in violation of 31 C.F.R §1010.350 (formerly 31 C.F.R. §103.24). FinCEN also takes enforcement actions against money services businesses (MSBs) for failure to register with FinCEN in violation of 31 C.F.R §1022.380 (formerly 31 C.F.R. §103.41).
