Money laundering is a criminal offence; bank should not provide any service to any criminals and assisting a Money Launderer as it is a criminal offence too. Anticipating the importance of legislation in this arena,the Government of Bangladesh has made a timely decision by enacting a law titled, “Money Laundering Prevention Act – 2002” and then “Money Laundering Prevention Act -2009” which are very comprehensive and valuable law. As the Central Bank mainly regulates this law, i.e. Bangladesh Bank and all its schedule banks, they must be well comprehended on this law and well equipped to implement it. Therefore, efforts have been undertaken in this study to focus on the real scenario of the EXIM Bank operating soundly in Bangladesh in anticipating the importance of the Act efforts to implement the law and continuity of banking business within legal framework. For the study, a number of secondary data has been collected from different sources, especially from The EXIM Bank Limited. According to those collected information and with the light of Money Laundering prevention Act 2002 & 2009 - a standard prevention procedure has been described in detail in this report, where I have mentioned different recommendations.

To ensure a consistence and uniform treatment in implementing the law all the banks must work together in the Banking Industry.
