The Joint Money Laundering Steering Group (JMLSG) thanks all who responded to the public consultation on sectors 4 (Credit unions) and 20 (Brokerage services to funds). Final Board approved texts have been submitted to HM Treasury for approval, and notification of approval will be published on the website once it has been received.

Work continues on preparing new Guidance that will reflect changes in the Money Laundering Regulations (MLRs) due to be brought in based on the European Union’s Fifth Money Laundering Directive (5MLD). The finalisation and publication of new Guidance is anticipated to be in line with the timing of the expected 10 January 2020 implementation of the MLRs.
