Response to Law Commission review of the SARs regime

The government's response to the Law Commission's review of the suspicious activity reports (SARs) regime.



In 2017, the Home Office commissioned the Law Commission to review and provide recommendations on the suspicious activity reports (SARs) regime, and consider whether there is scope for reform.

In 2019, the Law Commission published its report, titled ‘Anti-money laundering: the SARs regime’.

The Home Office accepts or partially accepts 13 of the 19 recommendations in the report.
