The Anti-Money Laundering and Countering Financing of Terrorism (AML/CFT) Act 2009 applies to lawyers from 1 July 2018. By that date law firms that provide activities captured by the Act must have an AML/CFT programme which includes, among other things, policies and procedures for conducting customer due diligence (CDD) on clients.

The webinar is presented by the Department of Internal Affairs, the AML/CFT supervisory agency for the legal sector. It will be a practical overview covering:

• Basics of CDD – when and how to do it
• Obtaining and verifying identity information
• Identifying beneficial owners
• Enhanced due diligence
• Ongoing due diligence

The webinar will be useful for all law firms that provide activities captured by the Act. Partners/management, AML/CFT compliance officers and other people in law firms who will be involved in the CDD process may find it particularly valuable to attend.

Note for attendees: there is an assumption that all attendees are aware of and have already read the guidelines published by the DIA in December 2017 on CDD prior to their attendance at the webinar. These guidelines can be found on the DIA webinar here:
