Troutman Pepper Advisory: CSBS Continues Streamlining of Licensing for Payments Firms Through ‘One Company, One Exam’ Program
On September 15, the Conference of State Bank Supervisors (CSBS) announced that money transmitters operating in 40 or more states will be able to take advantage of a new, comprehensive exam designed to satisfy all state money transmitter examination requirements in 2021. Per the CSBS, this “one company, one exam” program, known formally as “MSB Networked Supervision,” applies to “78 of the nation’s largest payments and cryptocurrency companies that currently meet the 40-state threshold.” Through this program, the CSBS, an organization composed of regulators from all 50 U.S. states, Washington D.C., Guam, Puerto Rico, American Samoa, and the U.S. Virgin Islands, allows money transmitters who reach the 40-state threshold to replace state-by-state examinations with a single exam that will satisfy all state requirements. Under the program, a single state will lead the exam and, in doing so, will use a group of examiners selected from around the country. This effort is line with recent CSBS activity, which, as part of its Vision 2020 initiative, has consistently tried to lead the way in “harmoniz[ing] the multistate licensing and supervisory experience for nonbank financial services providers, including fintechs.”
