Under Part 15 Division 5 of the Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing Act 2006 (AML/CTF Act), the AUSTRAC Chief Executive Officer (CEO) may give remedial directions to reporting entities.
A remedial direction is a written direction that is enforceable in a court, given by the AUSTRAC CEO to a reporting entity where the AUSTRAC CEO is satisfied that the reporting entity has contravened, or is contravening, a civil penalty provision of the AML/CTF Act.
A remedial direction requires a reporting entity to take specified action directed towards ensuring that the reporting entity does not contravene the civil penalty provision in future.
By publishing copies of remedial directions, AUSTRAC remains transparent and accountable in its decision making.
