The Federation has updated its guide to the UK’s anti-money laundering legislation. The guide aims to ensure that members are compliant with the legislation and to protect them from the effects of money laundering.

11 July 2018

The UK anti-money laundering regime has evolved over a number of years and includes legislation intended to counteract not only criminal money laundering but also terrorist financing.

The objective of this guidance is to ensure that members are compliant with the legislation and to protect them from the effects of money laundering. It is also intended to assist members in producing appropriate risk-based systems and controls to enable the effective mitigation of money laundering and terrorist financing risks.

The guide was originally published in 2010, and updated in June 2018.
