AGENCY:

Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN), Treasury.

ACTION:

Interim final rule; correction.

SUMMARY:

FinCEN published in the Federal Register of November 6, 2002, a document (67 FR 67547) extending the provision in its regulations that temporarily defers, for certain financial institutions, the application of the anti-money laundering program requirements in section 352 of the Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism (USA PATRIOT) Act of 2001. The document inadvertently omitted a minor change to a cross-reference and a minor change that would avoid listing the affected financial institutions twice in the same section. This correction adds both changes.

DATES:

This correction is effective November 6, 2002.
