Once you have completed your practice’s risk assessment, the next step is to develop an efficient and effective compliance programme to appropriately mitigate the risks that have been identified. The programme must include adequate processes, policies and controls for a range of mandatory considerations including staff vetting, training, customer due diligence, reporting, record keeping and for managing and mitigating the risks of money laundering and financing of terrorism.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understand better how to approach the creation of an AML compliance programme and how systems and processes already in place may be included and/or adapted.
  • Gain insights into what makes a compliance programme effective in practice.
  • Learn more about the minimum requirements for a programme, the importance of vetting and training procedures, and reporting and auditing processes, including suspicious activity and prescribed transaction reports.

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 determining the approach of the practice and developing the necessary policies and processes.
