The 2007/8 Handbooks

Following the introduction of the Commission's 2019 Handbook on Countering Financial Crime and Terrorist Financing on 31 March 2019, the 2007 Handbook for Financial Services Businesses ("the FSB Handbook") and the 2008 Handbook for Prescribed Businesses ("the PB Handbook") have been repealed.  However, as part of the 2019 Handbook, transitional provisions have been included to provide firms with the time to bring their policies, procedures and controls up to date with the revised regime.

The June 2017 versions of the FSB and PB Handbooks have therefore been provided below for reference.
