AML/CFT Legislation

Financial Transaction Reports Act

The Financial Transaction Reports Act (FTRA), which was enacted in November 2001, is the backbone of the Korean AML/CFT system. It was under this law that the KoFIU was established as the primary national agency responsible for AML/CFT regulation and supervision and for the collection/analysis/dissemination of STRs.

The FTRA also provides essential AML/CFT measures such as CDD, STRs, and CTRs to be undertaken by the financial sector and casinos.
