Has anyone gotten hold of the new SAR form referenced in the Federal Register in February of this year? Ken G. did a webinar recently where we learned about it, but I have not seen a .pfd version that didn't have the word "draft" stamped across the face. I can't find in on FinCEN's website either. If anyone knows where it is, please share. Thanks.

If it isn't yet on the FinCEN website, it hasn't been finalized. There were several comments on the proposed changes (most were positive, as I recall), so there may be some further tweaks in the works.

Last I heard this form would not be released until mid year 2007. Fincen was taking suggestions on it up until July of this year.

At the ABA MLEC in Washington last month Michael Delucca from FinCEN indicated that the revised SAR should be published on December 4 and should be ready for use in February, 2007. Its use will be mandatory by August 1, 2007. In addition to a revised format, the form will include more detailed instructions and allow for "joint" filings by depositary institutions filing on the same fact situation.
