Yesterday, FinCEN briefed us on their plans to extend the current Geographic Targeting Order through September 16, 2018. All of the existing conditions still apply.  A copy of the GTO dated March 19, 2018 can be found by Clicking Here.

We suggest reviewing the previous Bulletins covering all FinCEN GTO releases and updates, which are linked below in the Reference section.
