    • FC-B.1.3

      The Rules and Guidance in this Module are in addition to and supplement the requirements contained in Decree Law No. (4) of 2001 with respect to the prevention and prohibition of the laundering of money; this Law was subsequently updated, with the issuance of Decree Law No. 54 of 2006 with respect to amending certain provisions of Decree No. 4 of 2001 (collectively, 'the AML Law'). The AML Law imposes obligations generally in relation to the prevention of money laundering and the combating of the financing of terrorism, to all persons resident in Bahrain (including financial services firms such as insurance licensees). All insurance licensees are under the statutory obligations of that Law, in addition to the more specific requirements contained in this Module. Nothing in this Module is intended to restrict the application of the AML Law (a copy of which is contained in Part B of Volume 3 (Insurance), under 'Supplementary Information'). Also included in Part B is a copy of Decree Law No. 58 of 2006 with respect to the protection of society from terrorism activities ('the anti-terrorism law').
