AUSTRAC information circulars

AUSTRAC information circulars (AICs) provide regulated entities with information about issues that may affect their business or compliance with their anti-money laundering and counter-terrorism financing (AML/CTF) obligations.

The AICs are organised into the following categories:

Reporting entities should note that in relation to activities they undertake to comply with the AML/CTF Act, they will have obligations under the Privacy Act 1988, including the requirement to comply with the Australian Privacy Principles, even if they would otherwise be exempt from the Privacy Act. For further information about these obligations, please refer to the Office of Australian Information Commissioner website or call 1300 363 992.
