The Anti-Money Laundering and Countering Financing of Terrorism Act 2009 (AML/CFT)  came fully into force on 30 June 2013 under a commencement order Gazetted on 30 June 2011. Reporting entities now have to have established and implemented their AML/CFT programme and comply fully with their obligations under the Act.

The AML/CFT Act requires reporting entities to obtain identity information about their customers and verify that information. We have access to a global customer verification resource for organizations in New Zealand and around the world.
