Criminals and terrorists are targeting the financial sector, using it to hide and move their illicit wealth, funnel money to illegal business operations and conflicts overseas, or supporting crimes such as drug trafficking, child sex exploitation and terrorist attacks.

These are not white collar crimes. They impact every Australian, from increasing the cost of living right through to our loved ones being harmed.

At AUSTRAC, it’s our job to protect the community by disrupting this activity and prevent it from occurring in the first place.

AUSTRAC is the Australian Government’s financial intelligence unit and anti-money laundering and counter-terrorism financing regulator.  With government and industry partners, we use financial intelligence and regulation to:

  • Prevent criminal abuse of the financial sector,
  • help business, government and law enforcement partners detect, deter and disrupt money laundering, terrorism financing and other serious crimes,
  • build and maintain trust and integrity in Australia’s financial system. Every day our people use their intellect, skills, initiative and the latest technologies to protect our country, economy and community.

Our purpose is to build resilience in the financial system and use financial intelligence and regulation to disrupt money laundering, terrorism financing and other serious crime.

The Regulatory Operations Branch

Regulatory Operations is the national AML/CTF supervision function. We are charged with proactively identifying non-compliance, generating insights on compliance trends and risks, and making sure our 15,000 regulated entities are meeting their obligations.

Our role is to influence and steer businesses to uplift their compliance capability and ensure they are resilient to exploitation by criminals.

Our regulatory scope includes banks, credit unions, casinos and sports betting, currency and digital currency exchange, bullion, money transfer businesses, superannuation and host of other businesses.

The work of Regulatory Operations is constantly evolving and no two days are the same.
