Digital currency exchange provider registration actions

Any business that provides digital currency (cryptocurrency) exchange (DCE) services must be registered with AUSTRAC.

We can refuse an application, and can also suspend, cancel or refuse to renew a registration if we think a business or organisation poses an unacceptable risk of money laundering, terrorism financing, or other serious crime. We can also impose conditions on registration if we identify an unacceptable risk in a business or organisation, or its operation.

We can publish the names of the DCE service providers who are the subject of such decisions, and we may choose to publish the notice.

We can also revoke a decision.
