TIPs, FinCEN PUB, HANDBOOK UPDATE
updated 07/21/14 12:44 PM
The Latest in Compliance
A new TIPs Bulletins (Technical Information and Procedures) has been posted by the California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues on Canada’s anti-SPAM legislation, which went into effect July 1 and is similar to the U.S. government’s CAN-SPAM Act of 2003.

The CAN-SPAM Act places restrictions on companies sending commercial electronic messages (CEMs) to people living in Canada.

Although the new anti-spam requirements will apply to U.S. credit unions that send marketing messages to members who reside in Canada, there is a grandfather clause for existing credit union members—and a safe harbor for emails that comply with the CAN-SPAM Act—that should help limit compliance burdens on U.S. credit unions.
