star this property answer text <p>The Strong Customer Authentication Regulatory Technical Standards (“the SCA RTS”), which are intended to reduce fraud and increase payments security, came into force on 14 March 2018 in EU law. The majority of its provisions will apply from 14 September 2019, and will apply in full in the UK.</p><p> </p><p>The EU (Withdrawal) Act (“the Act”) will bring into UK law all directly applicated EU regulations which are operative at exit day, as defined by the Act, or at the end of the proposed Implementation Period if the withdrawal agreement reached between the Government and the EU is ratified. This includes operative Regulatory Technical Standards (RTS). The Act also permits ministers to make amendments which correct deficiencies in these regulations, if that is necessary to ensure they operate effectively in the UK.</p><p>The Financial Regulators’ Powers (Technical Standards etc.) (Amendment etc.) (EU Exit) Regulations 2018, made under the Act, delegated responsibility for fixing deficiencies in the SCA RTS to the FCA. Under the Electronic Money, Payment Services and Payment Systems (Amendment and Transitional Provisions) (EU Exit) Regulations 2018, the FCA is also the competent authority for the SCA RTS after EU Exit.</p><p> </p><p>The FCA consulted on its approach to the SCA RTS after the UK has left the EU (see CP18/44, published on 19 December 2018). It proposes to substantially maintain these technical standards in UK law, to support consumer protection and to provide firms with certainty and clarity about the systems they have been building.</p>

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>

The Taskforce’s final report<sup><sup>[1]</sup></sup> concluded that benefits associated with the use of cryptoassets may arise in the future, but that the most immediate priorities for the authorities are to mitigate the risks posed by cryptoassets to consumers and markets, and to prevent the use of cryptoassets for illicit activity. As part of this, the Government will consult on its approach to cryptoassets this year. In addition, the authorities continue to encourage the responsible development of legitimate DLT and cryptoasset-related activity in the UK.<p> </p><p>[1] Full version of the report is available at: <a href="https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/752070/cryptoassets_taskforce_final_report_final_web.pdf" target="_blank">https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/752070/cryptoassets_taskforce_final_report_final_web.pdf</a></p>
