Draft versions of JFSC AML/CFT Handbooks published ahead of changes on 31st May


The JFSC has published draft versions of the revised AML/CFT Handbooks. These amendments will come in to effect on 31 May 2021.

The amendments are a direct result of:

  • Aligning The JFSC  regulatory regime with the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) 2012 Recommendations and
  • Having listened to Industry feedback on The JFSC  consultation paper.

The JFSC hosts a webinar on 14 April 2021 at 14:00 where:

  • Hamish Armstrong, Chief Adviser Financial Crime, and
  • Pia Holm, Senior Adviser Policy, will discuss the amendments in more detail.

During the session, they will also share insights from the consultation process. You can register for the webinar here.

You can find all draft versions of the AML/CFT Handbooks on the AML/CFT Handbook page of The JFSC  website.
