The Law Commission is an independent body which keeps the law under review and recommends reform where needed. Over the past 50 years more than two thirds of its recommendations have been accepted or implemented in whole or part. 

The Law Commission’s review

The Law Commission has been invited by the Home Office to review the anti-money laundering regime in Part 7 of the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002. And the counter-terrorism financing regime in Part 3 of the Terrorism Act 2000.

The review focuses on the legislative provisions underpinning the reporting of money laundering and terrorism financing. In particular the seeking of consent to proceed with suspicious transactions.

The review will focus on the consent provisions in:

• 2002 Act: sections 327 to 329 and sections 335, 336 and 338.
• 2000 Act: sections 21 to 21ZC

The review will also consider the disclosure offences in sections 330 to 333A of the 2002 Act. And sections 19, 21A and 21D of the 2000 Act.

The review aims to analyse and produce proposals addressing the problems with the anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist finance reporting regimes.
