The prevention of money laundering and combating the financing of terrorism

How should this guidance be used?

1.45 The purpose is to give guidance to those who set casino operators’ risk management policies, procedures and controls for preventing money laundering and terrorist financing. The guidance aims to assist casino operators with detail about how to comply with the Regulations and the wider legal requirements, and is intended to allow operators flexibility as to how they comply. Casino operators will need to establish more detailed and more specific internal arrangements directed by senior management and nominated officers to reflect the risk profile of their business. 

1.46 This guidance is not intended to be a substitute for legal advice and nothing in this document should be construed as such. Anyone requiring clarification on the legal issues contained in this document should seek their own independent legal advice. Neither is this document a substitute for casino operators’ individual risk management plans. Casino operators should refer to the Regulations and associated legislation in making decisions in relation to the Regulations. The examples used throughout are for illustrative purposes only. The references to legislation and case law are accurate at the time of writing, but these may be subject to repeal or amendment.
