On 31 January 2019, the Joint Money Laundering Steering Group (JMLSG)  published a press release announcing its work plan for 2019. The press release notes that new areas of guidance in 2019 will cover areas such as virtual currency exchanges, digital identities, and payment initiation services, alongside further work on the implementation of the Fifth Ant-Money Laundering Directive. The JMLSG also notes that any changes to UK legislation on money laundering arising from Brexit will be reflected in its guidance.
