June workshops on complying with the AML/CFT regime

The Department of Internal Affairs is hosting a series of workshops across New Zealand in June.

In brief

  • Workshops to help practices understand what’s required to complete a Risk Assessment and document their AML/CFT Programme
  • The AML/CTF regime seeks to help instil public confidence in our financial systems, both here and overseas

Phase 2 of the Anti-Money Laundering and Counter Terrorism Financing (AML/CFT) regime became effective in New Zealand on 1 October 2018, capturing accountants in practice.

The Department of Internal Affairs (DIA) has produced a wealth of resources to assist with compliance and in June it will hold training events across New Zealand to help businesses and accounting practices understand how to complete a Risk Assessment and document their AML/CFT Programme. The interactive workshops are designed to provide information on key factors businesses will need to consider, including navigating through DIA’s resources. Senior regulators will also be present to answer any specific questions after the training sessions.
