Regulatory Update 2 day Session - September 22-23, 2020
September 22, 2020 Day 1 - The SAR, Cyber Events, Marijuana, Hemp, and its Impacts
Webinar 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
This CBC webinar will discuss the issues regarding the BSA Suspicious Activity Report (SAR). We will discuss the requirements and the form in detail. We will include all of the latest completion instructions.
Our primary focus for the day will be the “newer” issues surrounding the form - cyber event reporting, and your future decision making Marijuana / Cannabis / Marijuana Related Businesses. We will discuss their impacts on the form.
Although not yet legal in North Dakota except for medicinal purposes, banks need to consider the possibility of being asked to bank marijuana related businesses (MRBs), as it probably is only a matter of time before full legalization becomes a reality. We will discuss the decision process that needs to take place regarding these businesses, and the impact of these businesses may have on your bank, both operationally and for BSA.
While no longer illegal, we will also discuss issues that are important to review surrounding the propagation of hemp. As hemp farming expands, we need to be prepared to handle the issues that have impacts for the bank, both for compliance and safety and soundness.
These subjects were suggested by several CBC members when we requested potential topics for 2020.
September 23, 2020 Day 2 - Regulation DD, D, the new APYWIN and Deposit Disasters
Webinar 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
In a recent publication, the FDIC indicated that the second most violated regulation for 2019 was Regulation DD. Although the regulation has not changed in many years, in order to either retain or grow market share, bank management and staff have been “creative” with new product offerings. And with the end (at least for now) of restrictions on transactions under Regulation D, the creativity is more permissible – to a point. The impacts of these changes will be an important portion of our discussion.
The second portion of the presentation will be a review of the new 2020 version of APYWIN. This compliance tool has been redesigned in part to assist banks with the new and more challenging products that they are creating. This portion of the presentation will discuss how to use the new APYWIN to assure compliance with the relevant parts of Regulation DD. The manual will assist attendees in the use of APYWIN, similar to APRWIN which was offered as a topic last year.
The third portion of the presentation we have titled “Deposit Disasters.” Attendees will be given the opportunity to review the issues raised in real life hotline questions and audits Young & Associates, Inc. has performed, and to make decisions regarding how to resolve the issues presented, if necessary. “Deposit Disasters” will also include a review of advertisements - something that can create no end of difficulties if the bank is not careful. Attendees will get to take a look at the text of the advertisements and make decisions regarding whether the advertisements were correct, and if not, how to fix them.
This topic was chosen based on the FDIC results discussed above, as well as several requests for APYWIN and more “real life scenarios” that were made when we solicited subject ideas for our 2020 CBC seminars.
•The SAR – the latest instructions
•The impacts of Cyber Events on the SAR process
•The impacts of Marijuana and Cannabis business on the SAR process
•Management of Marijuana and Cannabis businesses and the unintended consequences for the bank
•Determining what kinds of Marijuana and Cannabis businesses to bank
•Issues that need to be considered regarding the propagation of hemp
•Deposit Disasters – case studies and advertisement issues
Who Should Attend
September 22 - BSA Officers, Compliance Officers and Auditors should attend this session. In addition, all personnel with management responsibilities within the bank will likely have some hard decisions regarding marijuana in the coming years, and a portion of this presentation will not tell you what to do, but will tell you what questions you will have to answer. Senior management, lenders, loan origination and deposit origination personnel will find this portion of the presentation helpful.
September 23 - Compliance officers, deposit department heads, senior management, marketing personnel, and others with responsibilities for deposit services should attend. Additionally, audit personnel will find this session useful.
Subjects for future seminars will be shaped by regulatory events as they unfold. The CBC quarterly compliance program remains committed to providing as much up-to-the- minute information as possible. The program will closely monitor releases from the CFPB and other agencies to assure that you have the most up-to-date and accurate information possible.
The first quarter 2021 topic has not been determined.
