The EU AML/CFT Global Facility and the Jordanian National Anti-Money Laundering and Counter Terrorist Financing Committee (NAMLCTFC) are organising a two-day workshop on “Training in AML/CFT for legal professionals and accountants”, targeted at some 90 participants from Jordan.
The workshop will be divided into two thematic days consisting of an outreach workshop on ML/TF for legal professionals and accountants. More specifically it will review how legal professions and accountants, and their self-regulated bodies, adequately apply AML/CFT preventive measures commensurate with their risks, and report suspicious transactions.
In the second day, a technical training for ML/TF self-regulated bodies will be delivered. It will tackle ways in which self-regulated bodies of legal professions and accountants supervise, monitor and regulate legal professions and accountants with AML/CFT requirements commensurate with their risks.
The objectives of the outreach programme are to ensure that:
- o Operators in the regulated accountant and legal professional sectors become familiar with obligations such as KYC, customer due diligence, STRs reporting and the risk-based approach;
- o Their self-regulated bodies become familiar with basics AML/CFT requirements, and their supervisory and monitoring tasks: supervision, monitoring of legal professions and accountants for compliance with AML/CFT requirements commensurate with their risks;
- o The outreach programme is also designed as a pedagogical tool to enable the regulators to educate and support DNFBPs in understanding and implementing their obligations.
