|December 8, 2017:||Publication of the draft “Guidelines for Anti-Money Laundering and Combating the Financing of Terrorism” and the draft amendments to the “Comprehensive Guidelines for Supervision of Major Banks, etc.”
The FSA proposed the draft “Guidelines for Anti-Money Laundering and Combating the Financing of Terrorism” and the draft amendments to the “Comprehensive Guidelines for Supervision of Major Banks, etc.” The FSA deems it significant to strengthen the whole Japanese regime to ensure that its financial system is immune from money laundering and terrorist financing, by collaborating with the private sectors. The proposed Guidelines aim to clarify the basic stance on risk management practices against money laundering and terrorists financing in order to encourage financial institutions to improve their regimes to effectively prevent money laundering and terrorists financing.
