HistoryEdit

The office was established on 16 March 2017, five years after the second round of an Asia/Pacific Group on Money Laundering performance review stated that Taiwan's existing laws regarding money laundering did not conform to international standards.[1] Premier Lin Chuan stated at the opening ceremony that the office will help build a more transparent and orderly financial environment in Taiwan.[2] Deputy Minister of Justice Tsai Pi-chung was appointed as the office's first director.[3]
