The Basel Committee on Banking Supervision has issued, for public consultation, a revised version of the General guide to account opening. When finalised, the revised General guide to account opening will be added as an annex to the Committee's Sound management of risks related to money laundering and financing of terrorism guidelines, published in January 2014. The proposed guide expands on, and should be read in conjunction with, the 2014 guidelines. It aims to support banks in implementing the FATF standards and guidance, which requires the adoption of specific policies and procedures, in particular on account opening. Comments should be submitted by 22 October 2015.
