Consultation on updates to anti-money laundering guidance for casinos

Consultation start date: 31 July 2017

Consultation end date: 8 September 2017

Consultation

This consultation sought views on our proposals to update The Prevention of Money Laundering and Combating the Financing of Terrorism: Guidance for remote and non-remote casinos (the Guidance) to its fourth edition.

Response

We have now considered the responses provided and have published the final version of the Guidance along with the consultation response.

The Guidance comes into effect immediately, as the Money Laundering, Terrorist Financing and Transfer of Funds (Information on the Payer) Regulations 2017 are already in force.

We recognise that it takes time to implement changes and we will take that into account but we expect to see that an operator has acted promptly, invested appropriately (if technology is required to accommodate the changes) and implemented changes with the requisite urgency.
