Chapter 39 - United States of America
This is a chapter from the Bloomsbury Professional book International Guide to Money Laundering Law and Practice, 3rd Edition, which provides a detailed insight into the background of money laundering operations. At a time of unabated governmental interest in anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist financing (AML/CTF) initiatives, the book clearly explains the anti-money laundering laws and regulations in key global financial centres throughout the world, including new developing financial and business centres. Each chapter is contributed by a local industry expert and offers an authoritative country-specific overview of the legislation and regulation relating to money laundering in that jurisdiction, including compliance, accounting and confiscation issues. Chapters on European jurisdictions take into account the changes brought about by the Third Money Laundering Directive and the chapter on the practical implementation of UK regulations covers the move to a more risk based approach.
