FinCEN Statement on Bank Secrecy Act Due Diligence for Independent ATM Owners or Operators

The Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) has issued a statement to provide clarity to banks on how to apply a risk-based approach to conducting customer due diligence (CDD) on independent Automated Teller Machine (ATM) owners or operators, consistent with the requirements set out in FinCEN’s 2016 CDD Rule. Some independent ATM owners and operators have reported difficulty in obtaining and maintaining access to banking services, which jeopardizes the important financial services they provide, including to persons in underserved markets.
