Anti-Money Laundering Guidance

The Money Laundering Regulations 2007 were amended on 1 October 2012. Our AML Guidance is currently being updated to reflect these changes.

HM Treasury have formally approved the existing guidance. This means that designated authorities must consider whether this guidance has been followed when deciding whether a person has failed to comply with the Money Laundering Regulations. The guidance has been formally approved for the purposes of section 330(8) of the Proceeds of Crime Act (2002), and the guidance which deals with the Terrorism Act (2000) has also been formally approved by HM Treasury for the purposes of section 21A(6) of that Act.

NFoPP has worked in conjunction with the RICS, the Association of Relocation Professionals, and the Association of Residential Managing Agents, to produce revised guidance for all members in relation to:

  • Proceeds of Crime Act
  • Terrorism Act
  • Financial Sanctions
  • Bribery Act
  • Money Laundering Regulations
  • AML Supervision

The guidance also includes sector specific guidance intended to assist property professionals working in different disciplines to understand how the obligations apply to them. We would also suggest that you view the following two webpages:
