Course Summary:

The 2010 Anti-Money Laundering and Counter Terrorist Financing Act and the Guidance notes set out a requirement for annual staff training on AML. Recent sanctions from the Central Bank of Ireland have specified the requirement for all directors to receive training and to demonstrate full awareness of their obligations under the Criminal Justice (Money Laundering and Terorrist Financing) Act 2010. This 2 hour briefing discusses their responsibilities under the 2010 Act. The main focus includes director’s duties and obligations under the Act. Also, the Criminal Justice Act 2013, the 4th EU AML Directive and recent Irish and international enforcement will be discussed.

Key differences between the new Irish AML regime and those of the UK and the USA will be addressed.
