Regulatory Handbook

The Monetary Authority's Regulatory Handbook is issued under section 48 of the Monetary Authority Law. The handbook details the structure and responsibilities of the Board of Directors and the Management Committee, the relationships that the Monetary Authority has with external bodies, and specific information on matters such as the supervisory approach, supervisory returns, and anti-money laundering procedures. This document provides a practical guide to the operations of the Monetary Authority and reflects transparency and accountability in the way the Monetary Authority regulates and makes decisions.

Given the dynamic nature of the financial services industry and the constant changes facing the Monetary Authority the handbook is subject to on-going review and revision. All revisions are gazetted and posted on the website. Hard copies of the handbook are available upon request from the Monetary Authority for a nominal fee.
