In Section 610.1 of the HKICPA Guidelines on AML/CTF for Professional Accountants and Section 3.1 of the CR Guideline on Compliance of AML/CTF Requirements for TCSPs, there is a need for firms to implement internal policies, procedures and controls (IPPC) to address ML/TF risks.  How does a firm develop and implement these AML/CFT IPPC in their day-to-day operations to mitigate the ML/TF risks and comply with the AMLO requirements?  This session will share with the participants practical implementation that will balance compliance requirements and business needs.


Screening your customers for AML/CFT

In Section 620.12.11 and 650.1.16 of the HKICPA Guidelines and Section 5.34 and 8.12 of the CR Guideline requires professional firms to screen their customers to determine that they are not Politically Exposed Persons (PEP), relatives/ close associates of PEP, or sanctioned persons.  Commercially available databases provide an effective way to screen the customers.  What is considered a "good" commercial database?  This session will provide the qualities of Dow Jones Risk and Compliance database.
