About the consultation

This consultation seeks views on proposed changes to the Money Laundering (Jersey) Order 2008 (MLO).

Draft Money Laundering (Amendment No. 12) (Jersey) Order 202- 

Draft Money Laundering (Amendment No. 12) (Jersey) Order 202- Explanatory Note

Proposed changes

In order to better align the legislative anti-money laundering (AML) and countering the financing of terrorism (CFT) regime with the terminology and requirements under international AML/CFT standards or international best practices, the Government of Jersey is proposing to make a number of amendments to the Money Laundering (Jersey) Order 2008 (the “MLO”).

The proposed amendments either look to align, clarify, or expand existing provisions in the MLO. It is proposed that the existing additional obligations imposed on financial groups regarding group-wide policies and procedures also apply to groups of designated non-financial businesses and professions.

The insertion of new provisions is proposed in order to enable the declassification of Politically Exposed Persons, after a certain period and subject to the application of a risk-based approach.
