National Commission

The ONDCP was established as an administrative sub-unit of the Prime Minister's Ministry in 1996 with its sole purpose to enforce the provisions of the Money Laundering (Prevention) Act of 1996. Thereafter in 2003 the ONDCP Act was passed establishing the organization as an independent law enforcement agency with specific authority to investigate reports of suspicious activity concerning specified offences and the proceeds of crime.

The Director serves as the Supervisory Authority for financial institutions (under the MLPA) inclusive of the enforcement of Antigua and Barbuda’s Prevention of Terrorism Act and its anti-terrorism financing provisions. Additionally, the ONDCP fulfills the role as Antigua and Barbuda's primary counter narcotics investigation interdiction agency inclusive of the collection, development and dissemination of intelligence on drugs.

The functions of the organization are guided by:

  • The ONDCP Act 2003
  • The Prevention of Terrorism Act 2001
  • The Money Laundering Prevention Act 1996
  • The Proceeds of Crime Act 1993
  • The Misuse of Drugs Act 1992 (as amended).
