The Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council has released updates to four sections of the BSA/AML Examination Manual:

The FFIEC's  press release indicates the updates should not be interpreted as new instructions or increased focus on certain areas; instead, they offer further transparency into the examination process and support risk-focused examination work.
