Q:  Does FinCEN prepare and distribute training materials, such as videos, on the BSA reporting and recordkeeping requirements?
 
A:  FinCEN does not currently prepare or distribute training videos or materials. FinCEN frequently participates in conferences and other forums to discuss BSA reporting and recordkeeping requirements, developments relating to FinCEN's regulations, and counter money laundering efforts.

FinCEN’s publications also impart information that may be useful in the preparation of training materials, such as SAR Guidance, Strategic Analytical Reports, and The SAR Activity Review: Trends, Tips & Issues, which are available on FinCEN’s web site under the tab for “Reports & Publications". FinCEN also frequently issues guidance to financial institutions on BSA reporting and recordkeeping requirements.

Furthermore, financial institutions, particularly depository institutions such as banks, thrifts and credit unions, have significant resource materials available to help them train from their industry associations and other sources in the private sector. In addition, the primary regulators may also provide publications and resource material to use in BSA training and may be consulted on BSA compliance issues.(10/2001).
