Notice of Amendments to Legislation

Following the ending of the consultation period on a number of proposed legislative changes that were set out in Consultation Paper No. 124 the DFSA Board, after due consideration of consultees’ comments, made amendments to the DFSA Rulebook as described below. Please bear in mind that changes may have been made to the legislation originally proposed in the relevant consultation paper.

The DFSA Board also amended the AML module of the Rulebook to make various minor and consequential amendments to update or correct references that are no longer correct due to the entry into force of new Federal AML legislation.
