On May 11, 2018, the FFIEC released new Customer Due Diligence Examination procedures that reflect and codify the requirements of FinCEN’s final CDD rule.
These updates detail how financial institutions must establish appropriate risk-based CDD procedures to understand the nature and purpose of their customer relationships. By following this risk-based approach, institutions develop and maintain an accurate customer risk profile with an increased focus on higher-risk customers and incorporate ongoing monitoring for enhanced due diligence and suspicious activity monitoring.
