The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) is already responsible for the anti-money laundering (AML) supervision of UK credit and financial institutions and certain other categories of firm specified in the Money Laundering, Terrorist Financing and Transfer of Funds (Information on the Payer) Regulations 2017.

The Fifth Anti-Money Laundering Directive (5AMLD) contains measures that include bringing new categories of firm into scope of national AML regimes. The Government will consult on its approach to transposing 5AMLD in due course.
