What is OPBAS?

OPBAS is the Office for Professional Body Anti-money Laundering Supervision. OPBAS is a regulator set up by the Government to strengthen the UK’s anti-money laundering (AML) supervisory regime, and to ensure that all AML supervisor professional bodies are working at the same high level. OPBAS is housed with the FCA (Financial Conduct Authority) and, while it aims to improve the consistency of AML supervision across the regulated sector, it does not directly supervise legal and accountancy firms. The list of the professional body AML supervisors overseen by OPBAS are listed on the OPBAS website and mainly includes accountancy and law associations.
