4 July 2022

The Department of Internal Affairs (The Department) AML Group has just announced the publication of DIA’s approach to regulation of Anti-Money Laundering and Countering Financing of Terrorism and A Guide to DIA’s Anti-Money Laundering and Countering Financing of Terrorism compliance and enforcement activities.

The publication of these documents is a milestone in embedding the regulatory foundations in the Regulatory Services Group Strategy 2021-26, and a step toward our vision to be a world-leading innovative AML system that operates with integrity and makes a difference.

The Approach to Regulation outlines why the AML Group operates along with the outcomes we seek to achieve from effective risk-based supervision of AML/CFT risk. It is intended to be multi-use and multi-audience. 

The Guide to Compliance and Enforcement activities sets out how we use our compliance and enforcement toolkit and how we go about making impactful and proportional decisions to change behaviour.
