Registration Regime for dealers in precious metals and stones
As a member of the Financial Action Task Force, Hong Kong needs to strengthen legislation and regulation to combat money laundering and terrorist financing. The Hong Kong government has introduced a new two-tier registration regime for precious metals and gemstones dealers in the "Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorist Financing (Amendment) Ordinance 2022", which has been implemented on 1 April 2023. The Hong Kong Customs is responsible for implementing the registration regime and taking law enforcement actions against non-compliant cases.
