04/02/09 Birmingham Anti-Money Laundering Conference

Businesses in the Birmingham area are invited to a FREE one day conference to learn how to safeguard themselves against serious organised crime and money laundering.

The event, run by ‘Payback’ and hosted by the UK Financial Intelligence Unit of SOCA, will be held on Thursday March 12 at the National Motorcycle Museum, Birmingham and is aimed at small and medium sized businesses that are covered by the Money Laundering Regulations.

Such businesses – by their very nature – are vulnerable to abuse by those attempting to launder the proceeds of crime, and the aim of the conference is to make businesses more aware of their role in identifying any suspicious activity taking place during their day-to-day work, thereby making a difference in reducing harm caused to communities by serious organised crime and also protecting their business.

The programme of event is specifically designed to reflect the needs of those within an organisation that have a working interest in combating money laundering, to ensure their business is compliant, to share ideas and help mitigate against the possibility of criminals using businesses to launder the proceeds of crime.

The day will run from 9.30am ton 4.30pm and anyone interested should contact fiudialogue@soca.x.gsi.gov.uk for an application form. It is a first come, first served basis.
