Use of digital currency and remittance registration status

12 April 2018

The registration by AUSTRAC of a digital currency exchange or remittance service provider does not constitute an endorsement of that business or compliance with any anti-money laundering and counter-terrorism financing (AML/CTF) obligations.

Digital currency exchanges have been required to apply for registration from 3 April 2018 and remittance providers are already required to be registered.

Businesses must not use their registration status in any way that suggests AUSTRAC or the Commonwealth Government endorses you or any of your services or products. Words including 'endorsed', 'approved' or 'licensed' are examples of inappropriate wording.
