    BCBS Consults on Guidelines on Prudential and AML/CFT Supervision

    November 08, 2019

    BCBS is proposing to amend guidelines on the sound management of risks related to money laundering and financing of terrorism (ML/FT). The guidelines to be amended were published in June 2017. The proposed changes provide detailed and practical guidelines on the interaction and cooperation between prudential and anti-money laundering and combating the financing of terrorism (AML/CFT) supervision. The comment period on this consultation ends on February 06, 2020.

    The proposed guidelines set out principles and recommendations for information exchange and cooperation in relation to the authorization related procedures of a bank, to the ongoing supervision, and to the enforcement actions. The proposed changes include a new provision in "The role of supervisors" section that recommends establishing an effective cooperative system and a supplementing annex with specific recommendations and descriptive examples to facilitate supervisory cooperation. The guidelines present possible methods of implementation, including mechanisms to facilitate such cooperation, with a range of descriptive examples and supervisory practices.  When supervisors are not part of the same supervisory authority, a bilateral or multilateral memorandum of understanding, prudential supervisory colleges, and AML/CFT supervisory colleges are presented as examples of such mechanisms.

    The proposed guidelines also cover processes of information exchange, relationships with third parties (such as financial intelligence units), and issues related to confidentiality and data protection. A number of examples of potential information types or cooperation processes are included to provide concrete insights for implementing the recommendations. Additionally, a range of supervisory practices, some of which may not be applicable to all jurisdictions, are presented whenever deemed useful. The proposed guidelines are intended to enhance the effectiveness of supervision of ML/FT risk management by banks, consistent with and complementary to the goals and objectives of the standards of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) and the principles and guidelines of BCBS.
