Access to this register will also be extended to firms regulated for anti-money laundering purposes, and those with a legitimate interest in the information.</p><p> </p><p>5AMLD has a transposition deadline during January 2020. This falls within the implementation period, and so the UK will transpose this Directive. The Government will consult on the transposition of the Directive in due course.</p> more like this
