JFSC 1st July AML handbook has been amended on 21st July 2023 which affects some of the numberings.


The JFSC updated its 1st July AML handbook on 21st July – the clean version is below – please note there are no consolidated track changes, only chapter-to-chapter changes.

In releasing its updated 21st July version of the AML handbook, the JFSC has confused matters as follows:-

  • For a supervised person to comply on 1st July, they will have followed the JFSC track changes document from April 2023 [The JFSC has now removed its April amendments from its website]
  • The JFSC, rather than follow on from the April 2023 version, has revisited its January 1st 2023 version, including the numbering to produce the 21st July 2023
  • Therefore those who mapped their July 1st updates from the JFSC April changes will not have the same numberings as the JFSC 21st July version.
  • Therefore there is some work to do to map back to the January 1st version due to the wholesale change in numbering.

Also, the JFSC has amended the following guidance from the 1st July handbook.
