CIMA's effective and proportionate use of its powers to enforce the requirements of the regulatory laws and other relevant legislation (such as the Anti-Money Laundering Regulations) plays an important role in the pursuit of its regulatory objectives. CIMA endeavours to exercise its enforcement powers in a manner that is transparent, proportionate and consistent with its publicly stated policies and guidelines.
