The Society, with input from the National Crime Agency (NCA), is delivering an education event aimed at legal practices’ Money Laundering Reporting Officers (MLROs)/Nominated Officers (as per the Money Laundering, Terrorist Financing and Transfer of Funds (Information of the Payer) Regulations 2017).
The NCA, as the body to whom MLROs submit SARs, will share from its perspective on the SARs regime and why it is in the interests of all parties to continue working together on improved reporting through the SARs regime.
Topics to be covered include:
What information/considerations should make it more likely for MLRO’s to submit a SAR to the NCA? What information/considerations should MLROs be encouraging those within their practices to provide when submitting a report to the MLRO?
Why Quality Information matters
Information about the ‘journey’ of a SAR once submitted e.g. what happens practically, who receives and reviews it (which LEA and where), what happens with the information submitted.
Comment on the quality of SARs and DAMLs received at present and common operational issues encountered by the NCA.
Case studies/worked examples of positive outcomes from the SARs regime.
FATF, SARs Reform including the IT reform programme and the Law Commission review.
