Q: How should the primary federal regulator field be completed?
A: For item 29 – Primary Federal Regulator:
Identify the financial institution’s primary federal regulator or BSA examiner from the following list. If more than one regulator option could apply, select the regulator that has primary responsibility for enforcing compliance with the BSA. Option “D” for Internal Revenue Service must be entered if the institution is subject to US law and none of the other codes apply. The regulator options are:
A = Commodities Futures Trading Commission (CFTC)
B = Federal Reserve Board (FRB)
C = Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC)
D = Internal Revenue Service (IRS)
E = National Credit Union Administration (NCUA)
F = Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC)
G = Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC)
