Anti-Terrorist Laws – New Zealand

New Zealand has recently introduced obligations on businesses in the professional services area to risk manage threats of money laundering and terrorism financing. These services have included lawyers, accountants and real estate agents.

These businesses are responsible for ensuring they have adequate risk management processes to identity, monitor and report on threats.
