Under the Regulations firms must establish and maintain policies, controls and procedures to mitigate and manage effectively the risks of money laundering and terrorist financing identified in any risk assessment undertaken and the firm must maintain a written record of those policies, controls and procedures established.
We have a range of templates for the policies, control and procedure manuals suited to your sector. They are ‘tool kits’, offering a range forms and money laundering compliance checklists to be adapted to your firms individual requirements.
They are designed to aid the MLRO in preparing specific policies, controls and procedures for his firm and provide guidance for those awkward areas that from time to time arise. They are based fully on the guidance issued by JMLSG and the FCA and supplemented by additional guidance from various sector specific supervisory bodies such as HMRC dependent on which sector your firm operates in.

External Review of Polices Controls and Procedures
Under the Regulations businesses (other than sole practitioners with no relevant employees) must introduce a system of regular independent AML reviews, such as an external compliance review, if no internal function is available, so that the adequacy and effectiveness of systems can be better understood and any weaknesses systematically identified, in order that recommendations for improvement can be made and compliance monitored.
At BTC we offer to review your existing Policies, Controls and Procedures for their adequacy and effectiveness for compliance with the Regulations. Our expert report will detail our findings and conclusions, linking them to the specific sections of the Money Laundering Regulations and give details of recommended amendments to your compliance procedures.
