Changes in Legislation: Sanctions and Prosecution
We can impose penalties, and apply other sanctions when the businesses we supervise are not fully compliant with the Regulations relating to registration. We explain these in detail in MLR1 Penalties guidance.
We can investigate criminal offences (regulation 86) for breaches of regulation 56 or 57. These are the same as the breaches which are liable to a civil penalty under Regulation 76.
See Penalties guidance for criteria for criminal investigation of regulatory breaches.
