Legal sector specific anti-money laundering (AML) guidance & advice

The AML Legal Supervisors have agreed DRAFT Legal Sector Anti-Money Laundering Guidance taking account of the changes introduced by Money Laundering Regulations 2017 which came into force on 26 June 2017. It is marked draft because it is subject to approval by HM Treasury which is expected later this year, and so may be subject to change.  Once it has been approved by HM Treasury, the Guidance will be published in its final form.
