Industry fury over UK Treasury stance on guidance notes

London -- Financial services firms and executives from other industries are furious over the UK Treasury’s proposed treatment of guidance notes for anti-money laundering legislation, according to several industry sources.

Under the new regulations introduced by the UK Treasury at the end of 2003, a wide variety of industries are required to implement AML frameworks, including casinos, jewellers, and pawnbrokers.

As a result, several industry groups are developing guidance notes to help firms within their industry implement the new rules, and most are seeking UK Treasury approval for the documentation – a court must take into account industry guidance if it has been approved by a Treasury minister.
