FEDERAL DEPOSIT INSURANCE CORPORATION

12 CFR Part 326

RIN 3064-AD76


Procedures for Monitoring Bank Secrecy Act Compliance and Fair 
Credit Reporting: Technical Amendments; Correction

AGENCY: Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC).

ACTION: Final rule; correction.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The FDIC is correcting a final rule that appeared in the 
Federal Register of March 18, 2011, regarding Procedures for Monitoring 
Bank Secrecy Act Compliance and Fair Credit Reporting: Technical 
Amendments. This correction clarifies that the FDIC did not intend to 
remove a paragraph from its regulations.

DATES: Effective May 23, 2012. This correction is applicable beginning 
March 18, 2011.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Carl Gold, Counsel, Legal Division, 
(202) 898-8702, 550 17th Street NW., Washington, DC 20429.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On March 18, 2011, the FDIC published a 
final rule, Procedures for Monitoring Bank Secrecy Act Compliance and 
Fair Credit Reporting: Technical Amendments (76 FR 10672). This final 
rule included revisions to 12 CFR 326.8(a) and (b). No revisions were 
being made to Sec.  326.8(c) so it was not included in the March 18, 
2011, final rule, but owing to an error in punctuation in that rule, 12 
CFR 326.8(c) was removed from the Code of Federal Regulations.
    For the reasons set out in the preamble, the FDIC hereby amends 12 
CFR part 326 with the following correcting amendment:

PART 326--MINIMUM SECURITY DEVICES AND PROCEDURES AND BANK SECRECY 
ACT COMPLIANCE
