The MLCO & MLRO Roles Explained - SuperSARS & More
This webinar is aimed at all MLCOs, MLROs, deputies and departmental champions in the legal, accountancy, insolvency and other professional sectors including financial and credit institutions.
It will cover the role, duties and ethos of the MLCO as overall supervisor of AML systems and procedures, and of the MLRO as a recipient of reports and enquiries of suspicious activity in the regulated and unregulated sectors.
Do you know when your staff are right to be suspicious? Should you trust their hunches? When should you put them on enquiry?
These and other questions will be covered as well as how to deal with investigations, offences to avoid and the fear of tipping off.
The new proposals for the SuperSARs system will also be explored.
