Central Bank issues revised AML/CFT Guidelines
A revised version of the Central Bank's Anti-Money Laundering and Countering the Financing of Terrorism Guidelines for the Financial Sector (the Guidelines) was published on 23 June 2021. The revisions take account of recent legislative changes brought about by the Criminal Justice (Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing) (Amendment) Act 2021 (the 2021 Act), which transposed most of the Fifth Anti-Money Laundering Directive into Irish law, and new statutory instruments on beneficial ownership.
