Sound management of risks related to money laundering and financing of terrorism.
The Basel Committee has amended Sound management of risks related to money laundering and financing of terrorism, to introduce guidelines on cooperation and information exchange among prudential and AML/CFT supervisors for banks.
Consistent with the goals and objectives of the standards issued by the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) and principles and guidelines published by the Basel Committee, the revisions provide further detailed guidelines to strengthen the interaction and cooperation between prudential and AML/CFT supervisors.
The revised guidelines include new paragraph 96 in Part IV (The role of supervisors) and Annex 5 (Interaction and cooperation between prudential and AML/CFT supervisors). Annex 5 sets out specific principles, recommendations and descriptive examples, to facilitate effective and efficient cooperation in relation to authorisation related procedures of a bank, ongoing supervision, and enforcement actions. It also describes possible methods of implementation including mechanisms to facilitate such cooperation at the jurisdictional and international level.
The guidelines are not included in the Basel standards and are only applicable for those jurisdictions that choose to implement them on a voluntarily basis.
