Coronavirus: updates, advice and guidance
Although local authorities are not directly covered by the requirements of the Money Laundering Regulations 2007, guidance from CIPFA indicates that they should comply with the underlying spirit of the legislation and regulations.
Colchester Borough Council is committed to the highest possible standards of conduct and has, therefore, put in place appropriate and proportionate anti-money laundering safeguards and reporting arrangements.
