The ECCB said, 'The public is hereby cautioned that the operation of Bitcoin ATMs or any other sort of cryptocurrency operations is not currently regulated by the ECCB, the FSRC
St Kitts and Nevis or by any regulatory authority in the Eastern Caribbean Currency Union (ECCU).
- DFSA does not issue any "Fund Status Recognition Certificates"; and scammers have created a false "FSRC
Form" that fraudulently misuses the name of the DFSA without authority and for malicious purposes.
An objective moderator and assistant moderator from FSRC
conducted the focus group sessions.
CDC, the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI), and the FSRC have estimated food attribution using these data (12-16).
This approach is also employed in the Foodborne Illness Risk Ranking Model (FIRRM), an analytic tool developed by FSRC to compare the public health impact of various pathogen-food combinations (14-16).
FSRC researchers administered an expert elicitation of experienced food safety researchers, public health scientists, and food safety authorities for use in the Foodborne Illness Risk Ranking Model (15).
The motivation driving this suggestion is the same as that which motivated FSRC to convene the Food Attribution Data Workshop; to make informed science- and risk-based decisions about food safety interventions, we need to be able to associate foodborne illnesses to specific food vehicles.
* The Financial Services Regulatory Commission (FSRC
) is the statutory regulatory body for the insurance industry in Antigua and Barbuda.
In 2002, the IBCA was amended to create the Financial Services Regulatory Commission (FSRC) as the regulatory and supervisory authority that oversees offshore financial sectors, including internet gaming companies.
Casinos and sports book-wagering operations in Antigua and Barbuda's Free Trade Zone are supervised by the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) and the Directorate of Offshore Gaming (DOG), a department within the FSRC. In 2001, the DOG issued Interactive Gaming and Interactive Wagering Regulations in order to establish regulations for the licensing of the industry and address possible money laundering through client accounts of internet gambling operations.
An independent organization, the ONDCP is under the Ministry of National Security and is primarily responsible for the enforcement of the MLPA and for directing the GOAB's anti-money laundering efforts in coordination with the FSRC. The ONDCP assumes the role and fulfills the responsibilities of the Supervisory Authority as described in the MLPA, which includes the supervision of all financial institutions in respect to filing suspicious activity reports (SARs).
