Thu 14 June | 4:00PM - 5:30PM | Auckland CBD venue to be confirmed


Understanding the role of the AML/CFT supervisors and how they carry out their functions, and in particular the Department of Internal Affairs (DIA), will be of immense value to practitioners. This session will provide an opportunity for lawyers to hear from and engage with the DIA, as well hear from the experiences of a practitioner who has had close dealings with them in the past.

The session will afford practitioners the opportunity of hearing about any upcoming guidance, new or amended, and gain insight into where the supervisors see the primary focus of new reporting entities should be.

Fiona introduces 'The AML/CFT Toolkit Series II'

Learning Outcomes

  • Learn and understand more about the role of the supervisors and how they work together to enforce the AML/CFT regime.
  • Learn more about the DIA’s engagement approach with its new reporting entities, including where to go for help and guidance, and its enforcement approach.
  • Gain insights into how the AML/CFT regulations will be applied from the DIA’s perspective. 
  • Understand better some of the issues facing practitioners in respect of their relationship with the DIA and how these may be dealt with.

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 and practice managers who will be responsible for the appointment of Compliance Officers.
