New Practice Briefing on AML/CFT specimen compliance documents

08 March 2018

The New Zealand Law Society has provided to the profession some specimen AML/CFT compliance documents to assist lawyers to prepare for the implementation of Phase 2 of the compliance regime prescribed by the Anti-Money Laundering and Countering Financing of Terrorism Act 2009 (AML/CFT Act). The intention is to provide a helpful starting point for lawyers to assist with understanding their obligations under the AML/CFT Act and to develop internal policies and procedures to meet those obligations. The documents are not prescribed forms and they will require adaptation.

This note is intended to provide some practical guidance for law firms who may decide to use the specimen documents. Read the note here
