Customer Due Diligence (CDD), or KYC (Know Your Customer) as it is often referred to internationally, is the cornerstone of the AML/CFT legislation. Simply stated, the more you know about your client and how they operate, the more likely it is you will be able to readily identify when something doesn’t add up. This session will look at the timing of CDD, and discuss how you can incorporate this into your practice’s operating procedures, as well as the three types of due diligence.
- Understand better what the AML/CFT legislation requires of reporting entities in respect of their customer due diligence, the three types of due diligence (simplified, standard, enhanced), when each is triggered and what is required.
- Gain insights into the types of forms, processes and checks you will need to develop to meet your obligations for both on-boarding and on-going customer CDD.
- Learn more about the Identity Verification Code of Practice, the option of electronic verification and automated electronic systems and how the requirements of the Code can be met through these, as well as accessing PEP (Politically Exposed Person) and sanctions watch lists.
Who should attend?
Given the scope of the legislation, this seminar will be relevant to almost all lawyers in practice but it will be of particular importance to senior partners, practice managers and AML Compliance Officers who will be responsible for the development of the policies and processes required to comply with the Act.
