Welcome to the FFIEC Bank Secrecy Act/Anti-Money Laundering InfoBase. The "FFIEC InfoBase" concept was developed by the FFIEC’s Task Force on Examiner Education and the Task Force on Supervision to provide field examiners at the financial institution regulatory agencies with an electronic source for training and distributing needed examination information. Financial institutions will also benefit from this training and examination information. The long-term goal of the InfoBase is to provide just-in-time training for new regulations and for other topics of specific concern to examiners within the FFIEC's member agencies: Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, National Credit Union Administration, Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and the State Liaison Committee. The SLC includes representatives from the Conference of State Bank Supervisors, the American Council of State Savings Supervisors, and the National Association of State Credit Union Supervisors.
