I. Abstract and Request for Comments
NCUA is reinstating the collection for 3133-0108. Section 748.2 of NCUA's regulations, 12 CFR 748.2, directs credit unions to adopt a written program and to maintain procedures that ensure the credit union's continued compliance with the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) (31 U.S.C. 5311-5330) and Department of Treasury's reporting and recordkeeping regulations (31 CFR part 1000). NCUA examiners review the programs to determine whether the credit union's procedures comply with the Bank Secrecy Act requirements. The requirement that credit unions establish written BSA compliance procedures is a one-time event, but revisions to those procedures must occur as deemed necessary.
NCUA examiners review the written procedures during examinations in order to ensure the implementation of adequate systems for complying with the BSA and its implementing regulations.
The NCUA requests that you send your comments on this collection to the location listed in the addresses section. Your comments should address: (a) The necessity of the information collection for the proper performance of NCUA, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of our estimate of the burden (hours and cost) of the collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (c) ways we could enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways we could minimize the burden of the collection of the information on the respondents such as through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. It is NCUA's policy to make all comments available to the public for review.
