The Role, the Responsibilities & the Risks for MLROs - Your Live Guide to the 3 ‘R’s
On the 10th January 2020, the Money Laundering Regulations 2017 were updated to include new regulations under the 5th Money Laundering Directive (5MLD). Changes were made in key areas including policies, controls and procedures, training requirements, client due diligence, enhanced due diligence and discrepancies on registers. Also, the scope of the sectors covered by the MLR 2017 changed to include the art world and letting agents.
Under legislation it is a requirement by law to have a nominated money laundering reporting officer (MLRO) in the regulated sector.
