Legislation

AML/CFT legislations

This section hosts examples of model and comparative legislation, best practices standards and financial guidelines concerning money laundering. Further examples of legislation, regulations and financial guidelines are available via the International Money Laundering Network (IMoLIN/AMLID) website. The IMoLIN/AMLID site contains examples from a range of jurisdictions beyond the Asia/Pacific region and may have further up-to-date examples.

Please note that the documents appearing on this website may not necessarily be the most recent model legislation. The reader should check with the source of the documents to determine their status.  Particular model legislation may not suit all jurisdictions, depending on their particular circumstances and legal systems.  It is hoped that jurisdictions seeking to develop or strengthen their anti-money laundering systems will find these examples helpful.

Further model and comparative legislation and guidelines are available via the Implementation Issues section of the APG website.
