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. See MLR1PP4200
We can investigate criminal (regulation 45) offences under regulation 26, 27(4) or 33. These are the same as the breaches which are liable to a civil penalty under Regulation 42.
See MLR1PP12300 for criteria for Criminal Investigation of regulatory breaches
