The Compliance Commission (the Commission) has revised its Anti-Money Laundering/Combating the Financing of Terrorism (AML/CFT) Examination Forms which were last revised in 2010.

The examination forms were revised to clarify:

  • The requirement for a written Risk-based AML/CFT policies and procedures document;
  • Examination of financial institutions with a branch or branches;
  • What comprise a proper sample of facilities for examination;
  • Examination period;
  • The requirement for AML/CFT staff training; and
  • What is an AML/CFT internal compliance review.

The purpose of the Commission’s examination forms is to assess the level of compliance of financial institutions with AML/CFT laws and guidelines.  The forms are intended for the use of financial institutions supervised by the Commission and accountants appointed by the Commission to conduct AML/CFT on-site examinations on its behalf.

Financial Institutions supervised by the Commission and Accountants are reminded that a Letter of Appointment should be obtained from the Commission prior to the commencement of an AML/CFT On-site Examination.
