It's been another busy year for operations compliance. The Justice Department reversed course on enforcement of federal laws related to marijuana, revoking the Cole Memo. The Bureau finalized updates to its Prepaid Accounts rule and set an April 1, 2019, implementation date, and issued requests for information seeking feedback on its activities in a series dubbed "calls for evidence" by acting director Mulvaney. OFAC posted warnings about Venezuela's plans to issue a new digital currency. There were revisions to the Call Report. Plus, there were some significant BSA/AML penalties imposed; the usual collection of OFAC announcements of sanctions program and SDN List changes; OFAC violations and settlements; guidance from FinCEN; more emphasis on faster payments, including activation of Phase 3 of Same Day ACH. You implemented minor changes to Reg CC. We'll hit all the highlights during this fast review of the year's operations compliance issues, and tell you where to find more information on developments you may have missed during the year.
