Answer by Kathleen Blanchard: Here is a link to the Department of Justice certificate of compliance for subpoenas to financial institutions.
Answer by Mary Beth Guard: You are very wise to take the certificate of compliance seriously. It is an important protection from liability. We also have a Certificate of Compliance form on the BOL Forms page. You can download it in either PDF or Word doc format from there. Just scroll down on the page to the "Right to Financial Privacy Act" category of forms to find both versions. You'll also find an RFPA-compliant customer authorization form.
