The SRA is currently actively reviewing firms compliance with the legislative requirements of the Money Laundering Regulations (2017) and SRA Transparency Rules and have openly stated that they expect to see evidence of full compliance when conducting their review and will take enforcement action against those firms who cannot demonstrate compliance.

This short webinar aims to provide practical guidance to assist firms in understanding how to comply with obligations and will cover;

  • SRA Transparency requirements – key requirements and considerations.
  • Money Laundering Regulations (2017) Regulation 18 Firmwide Risk Assessment – key requirements and considerations.
  • SRA AML practice visits – what to expect.
