The Wolfsberg Group has published updated iterations of the Correspondent Banking Due Diligence Questionnaire (“CBDDQ”) and Financial Crime Compliance Questionnaire (“FCCQ”), accompanied by supporting guidance for firms.

  • The CBDDQ updates see the addition of a new Fraud section alongside questions pertaining to Whistleblower policies, Virtual Bank Licencing, and Sanctions policy approval; with corresponding changes made to the FCCQ.
  • The Group’s recommended timeframe for the update of the Questionnaires has been changed to 12-18 months so as to better align with CDD review periods.
  • The Completion Guidance and Capacity Building Guidance documents have been combined, providing further guidance to Correspondent and Respondent banks.

Firms should read the updated Questionnaires and supporting guidance documents and identify any potential changes to their operations that may be required.
