HM Treasury consultation on Money Laundering Regulations 2017
The Treasury launched an 8 week policy consultation on the Transposition of the Fourth Money Laundering Directive and Fund Transfer Regulation in September. These aim to give effect to the updated global Financial Action Task Force (FATF) standards.
The government sought views and evidence on the steps it proposed to take or should take, to transpose the Fourth Money Laundering Directive (4MLD) and those aspects of the Fund Transfer Regulation (FTR) that need to be transposed into national law.
This document gives an outline of the responses submitted and the government’s policy decisions positions following the consultation, and is accompanied by draft regulations.
The government welcomes views on the further policy questions posed in the document, as well as on the draft Money Laundering Regulations 2017, in particular on whether the drafting delivers the government’s stated aims.
