This one-day course provides a comprehensive overview of the role and responsibilities of a Money-Laundering Reporting Officer (MLRO) within a regulated firm. It is particularly suitable for newly appointed, or aspiring, MLROs as well as Deputy MLROs and others with responsibility for their firm’s AML controls.

The course outlines the legislative framework, and explores the split of responsibilities between the firm’s senior management and the MLRO. Attendees will gain an understanding of how to develop a money-laundering risk assessment as well as the practicalities of managing the firm’s suspicious activity reporting arrangements, with particular reference to the consent regime and lessons to be learnt from recent enforcement cases.

In addition the course will provide an update on the regulator’s current priorities and areas of interest. Other key role requirements such as training and awareness responsibilities and the provision of management information, including the regulatory requirement for an annual report to senior management, will also be addressed.
