A modular Independent Review

AML Check is a modular approach to an Independent Review that allows you to manage the scope and cost of your review based on the needs of your business.
Reporting entities are required by the AML/CTF Act and Rules to assess their AML/CTF Program’s alignment to their ML/TF risks and obligations.
Whether you choose to assess only the program’s alignment with the AML/CTF Act and Rules or the testing of the program’s implementation, or undertake a full AML/CTF independent review, you will be provided with a comprehensive report that sets out your level of compliance and recommendation to improve your business’ AML/CTF compliance.

THE PURPOSE OF A FULL INDEPENDENT REVIEW IS TO:

  • Assess the effectiveness of the AML/CTF Program having regard to its ML/TF risk;
  • Assess whether the AML/CTF Program complies with the AML/CTF Rules;
  • Assess whether the AML/CTF Program has been effectively implemented; and
  • Assess whether the reporting entity has complied with its AML/CTF Program.

THE SCOPE OF A FULL INDEPENDENT REVIEW

A review of your documented AML/CTF Program and supporting documented policies and procedures, including testing assumptions underlying the ML/TF risk assessment;
On-site testing and sampling of actual examples of the entity’s day- to-day operations to assess the effectiveness of compliance with procedures.

INDEPENDENT REVIEW DELIVERABLES

Initialism will provide a written report setting out the work undertaken, and its findings, together with suggested recommendations (if any) to address identified gaps. Initialism can also provide a summary report (in letter form) setting out the findings and recommendations (if any) that can be shared with internal and external parties.
