Guidance: Complying with AML/CFT verification requirements during COVID-19 Alert Levels

Page last updated: 26 Mar 2020

This guidance is for reporting entities under the Anti-Money Laundering and Countering Financing of Terrorism Act 2009 (AML/CFT Act) during COVID-19 Alert Levels. While New Zealand is subject to COVID-19 Alert Levels, reporting entities will be changing the way in which they conduct their business. At COVID-19 Level 4, only those reporting entities providing essential services are able to continue to operate at their premises, with limited interactions with customers. Reporting entities must operate in a way that limits the risk of the spread and transmission of COVID-19.
