Central Bank Releases Corrigendum to AML/CFT/PF Guidelines

Published: Thursday September 20th, 2018

Following the release of the document: “Guidelines for Supervised Financial Institutions on the Prevention of Money Laundering, Countering the Financing of Terrorism & Proliferation Financing”, published on the Bank’s website on the 29th August 2018 (the “AML/CFT/PF Guidelines), it was discovered that certain paragraphs had been inadvertently omitted from Part VII - RECORD KEEPING, in the section entitled “Verification of Identity and Other Records”.

The Central Bank has today issued a Corrigendum which inserts the omitted paragraphs into the AML/CFT/PF Guidelines. These additional paragraphs numbered 196A to 196J, should be read together with the AML/CFT/PF Guidelines.

A red-lined version of the AML/CFT/PF Guidelines showing all of the substantive changes made to the Guidelines to date, will be posted to the Bank’s website during the month of October 2018.

Any comments or questions regarding the AML/CFT/PF Guidelines should be directed to:
