Anti-money laundering guidance

The ACCA Anti-Money Laundering resource for practitioners has been updated as of June 2021 and includes detailed guidance developed by CCAB and a free on demand lecture and standard documentation.

This resource has been updated for the Criminal Justice (Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing) (Amendment) Act 2021, the European Union (Anti-Money Laundering: Beneficial Ownership of Corporate Entities) Regulations 2019 and for the European Union (Anti-Money Laundering: Beneficial Ownership of Trusts) Regulations 2021.  However, the CCABI guidance on this page and the online on demand CPD course linked from this page do not reflect changes since the Criminal Justice (Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing) (Amendment) Act 2018.  When updated the CCABI guidance and the on demand lecture accompanying that guidance, will reflect the internal reporting requirements in the 2019 Regulations, the requirements to check the register of beneficial ownership for new corporate and trust clients, the extension of the supervision period for PEPs and the additional supervision requirements for client from high risk countries or with complex businesses or corporate structures.
