Amendment to the money laundering regulations
Money laundering and terrorist financing (amendment) regulations 2019
On 10th January, 2020 the amendment to the money laundering regulations 2017 came into effect but what has changed and how does this affect law firms?
In this article, we highlight the key changes that we consider will impact on law firms and have removed the irrelevant amendments that should not affect them.
For those clients that are signed up to our Risk and Compliance Management Service, revised AML policies will be issued shortly to reflect the changes.

Part of running a compliant law firm is being aware of the changing regulatory requirements and legislation, interpreting impact, implementing updates through policies and communicating these to your staff and as needed your clients. Working with TSP ensures your firm achieves and retains a compliant environment thereby protecting the firms and its regulatory officers such as the COLP, COFA and MLCO.
