1701 Business Oversight
Program Descriptions


The objective of this program is to promote the integrity and stability of businesses receiving money in the United States for transmission, selling or issuing payment instruments, and selling or issuing stored value. The objective is accomplished through the examination, regulation, and supervision of these institutions. Examinations can be conducted at any time to ensure the licensees are complying with the provisions of the Money Transmission Act and operating in a safe and sound manner. In order to protect the public, a thorough review of each new applicant is conducted before a license is issued.
