Consultation description

In its response to the call for information on the AML supervisory regime, the government sought further views on its proposals to improve oversight of the regime, in particular the creation of a new Office for Professional Body AML Supervision, hosted by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), to help and ensure the 22 professional body AML supervisors provide effective and consistent standards of supervision.

The government would welcome views on the costs and benefits of the Office for Professional Body AML Supervision, and whether the draft regulations deliver on the government’s stated aims.
