FinCEN improves web site data
WASHINGTON (5/15/08)—The Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) disclosed that it has reorganized and expanded its website in response to recommendations from financial institutions. It said the goal was to improve informational content, and make it more user-friendly. FinCen said the redesigned web site has a standardized format, and restructured navigation system. It also promised “convenient category headings” for depository institutions and other users. The agency said the new format allows financial institutions to click on one place to view news, rules, guidance, and other regulatory information. It also includes a new “Quick Links” option on the right side of most pages to allow for fast access, and more supplemental information, according to the announcement. “We have listened to the suggestions and comments from our partners in the financial industry, and we have implemented changes that they have requested to make a better website,” said FinCEN director James Freis. He said this included displaying more efficiently on the homepage some of the some of the “most requested information” from financial institutions. The announcement also said under the new format, case examples of law enforcement successes facilitated by the Bank Secrecy Act are more prominently displayed and retrieveable. The Credit Union National Association is a member of FinCEN's Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) Advisory Group, a group established by COngress in 1992 to recommend ways to enhance the utility of BSA records and reports.
