Amendment to Schedule 2 Business Activities
Amendment to Schedule 2 Activities
The Proceeds of Crime (Jersey) Law 1999 (the Proceeds of Crime Law) was amended by the Proceeds of Crime (Amendment No.6) (Jersey) Law 2022 (the Amendment) came into force on the 30 January 2023.
As a result, Schedule 2 to the Proceeds of Crime Law has been recast so that activities and operations subject to AML/CFT/CPF obligations align to the definitions within the Financial Action Task Force Standards
All previous scope exemptions from AM/CFT/CPF obligations and exemptions from registration have been removed. This has also resulted in the business activities set out in Schedule 2 widening to include activities not previously within scope.
Our website has been redesigned to cater for Financial Institutions (FIs), Designated Non-Financial Businesses and Professions (DNFBP) and Virtual Asset Service Providers (VASPs).
