star this property answer text The Money Laundering Regulations 2017 (‘the Regulations’) do not require banks to carry out customer due diligence – including identity checks—on all existing customers. The Regulations instead require banks to take a proportionate approach to applying customer due diligence checks commensurate with the risk of money laundering. The legal requirements on banks to carry out customer diligence for existing customers are set out in Regulations 27(8)(9) and 29(7). The Joint Money Laundering Steering Group’s guidance provides further detail on applying these requirements.<p> </p><p>The impact assessment for the transposition of the 4th EU Money Laundering Directive (which led to the most recent revision of the regulations) estimates the total cost of the changes made, while concluding that industry has difficulty in identifying costs caused by the money laundering regulations. This is particularly the case for customer due diligence as many of these are costs that a prudent business would take on in any case as a matter of commercial practice, to comply with UN or EU sanctions, or to protect themselves and their customers from fraud. The full impact assessment is available on gov.uk.</p>

star this property answer text <p>HM Treasury is responsible for the Money Laundering Regulations 2017, which set out the high-level requirements on regulated businesses to combat money laundering. These Regulations are not prescriptive in setting out how customer due diligence (CDD) checks must be carried out, and instead require businesses to take a proportionate approach. Each business will therefore have their own policies based on their assessment of risks.</p><p> </p><p>Specific guidance for banks on applying customer due diligence measures and ongoing monitoring of customers is included in guidance published by the Joint Money Laundering Steering Group. This guidance is approved by HM Treasury, and it highlights that a firm must apply CDD measures at appropriate times to its existing customers on a risk-sensitive basis.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Money Laundering Regulations 2017 are clear that all relevant persons (such as banks) must apply customer due diligence (CDD) measures if the person establishes a business relationship (regulation 27). Whilst CDD measures include conducting ongoing monitoring of a business relationship, as outlined in my previous answer, the extent of the measures taken must reflect the risk assessment carried out by the relevant person under regulation 18(1) and its assessment of the level of risk arising in any particular case. Therefore, if a customer is deemed low risk, the extent of ongoing CDD measures would be tailored to that risk assessment and minimum monitoring would be expected.</p> more like this
