A database of currency seizures will be maintained and updated at the directorate. Other departments will also be given information regarding money laundering.

The directorate will share data of currency seizures with the FBR and Financial Monitoring Unit (FMU) on a monthly basis.

The FBR has said that the directorate will maintain and update a database containing information of Suspicious Transaction Reports received from the FMU. The database will help prevent money laundering.
