Commission supports HM Treasury report on anti-money laundering
17 July 2019
HM Treasury has published its latest anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist financing supervision report, which includes submissions from the Gambling Commission.
This report aims to improve the transparency and accountability of supervisors, and to encourage good practice. The Commission actively supports these efforts which contribute to our strategy to make gambling fairer, safer and crime free.
Economic Secretary to the Treasury, John Glen MP said:
"The Financial Action Task Force Mutual Evaluation Report found that the Gambling Commission had a good understanding of the Money Laundering/Terrorist Financing risks in the gambling sector and applied a risk-based approach to supervision. I will look to the Gambling Commission for continued high standards of Anti-Money Laundering/Counter Terrorist Financing supervision."
These comments, as well as those in the wider report, demonstrate the Commission’s effectiveness in adopting a risk-based approach to supervisory duties, which has been strengthened further via the recently published Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing Risk Assessment. The Commission encourages operators to review these documents.
