AML Regulations UK – AML Review Requirements

Feb 24th '23

This is why you need to review your UK Anti-Money Laundering (AML) Policy & Procedures.


Don’t get caught out by a regulatory visit under the AML Regulations UK to make sure that your AML policy, risk assessment and anti money laundering procedures are doing what they are supposed to do. Changes of staff, items forgot to be handed over, out of date AML policies and procedures manual and a long forgotten checklist that NEVER gets completed or updated, will land you in hot water.


For a fraction of the cost of a fine or management time wasted during regulatory scrutiny, we can review, revise, recommend and embed the right procedures, update the governance and provide an effective risk assessment. AML Regulations UK are also known as the Money Laundering Regulations (MLRs).


You need a robust AML and Risk Framework to demonstrate SMCR reasonable STEPSCheck out our MLRO Report template HERE!
