Under the MLR 2017 and legislation it is a requirement by law to have a nominated money laundering reporting officer (MLRO) in the regulated sector. The role of MLRO is a job and not just a title.

You may have just been given the role of the MLCO, MLRO or deputy MLRO. What does that mean and what happens next?

You may have always attended the anti-money laundering training your business has provided but how much more do you need to know to be able to do the job?

You may have been the MLRO or deputy MLRO for many years. Are you still up to date? Do you need a refresher?

This in-person course is not for academics but is full of practical advice and real-life scenarios.

Presented by the 'brilliant' and 'engaging' Jo Morris, this course is essential if you are new to the role of MLRO or deputy or just wish to learn more about the role and the changes in regulation.
