AUSTRAC's policies give reporting entities further insight into AUSTRAC's approach to its regulatory task. The Supervisory Framework is a high-level document which states AUSTRAC's guiding principles, specifies statutory objectives and outlines its approach to its relationships with other regulators in Australia.
AUSTRAC's policies on education, enforcement, exemptions, monitoring and reporting indicate at a high level its approach when assisting the AUSTRAC CEO to fulfil his functions as outlined in section 212 of the Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing Act 2006.
AUSTRAC's policies will evolve and develop over time to reflect the growing experience of reporting entities and the regulator with the new legislative environment. In all cases AUSTRAC aims to create an environment of continuous voluntary compliance with the legislation it administers and to build cooperative relationships with its reporting entities.
