Each reporting entity is required to designate an AML/CFT Compliance Officer to administer and maintain its AML/CFT programme. The extent of the role will depend on how each practice establishes its compliance framework, but the appointment does need to be carefully considered in terms of both responsibilities and liabilities.
- Understand better what would usually be expected of an AML/CFT Compliance Officer as well as the considerations to be taken into account when making the appointment, including the expectations, liability and obligations that the position carries and how the role may be approached.
- Gain insights from a specialist AML auditing and consultancy business about common pitfalls, and the importance of training and handover processes.
- Learn more about the importance of AML compliance for all staff engaging with clients and managing transactions, how it is essential that they understand and are committed to the AML programme.
Who should view?
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 and practice managers who will be responsible for the appointment of Compliance Officers and the overall compliance of the practice.
Access details will be delivered via email within 15 minutes.
