National Anti-Money Laundering (AML) Summit 2014 Sydney

  • Conference Call
  • The 2014 National Anti-​Money Laun­der­ing (AML) Sum­mit car­ries the theme “From tech­ni­cal com­pli­ance to prac­ti­cal effec­tive­ness — exam­in­ing Australia’s AML/​CFT régime”. The event will be held on Sep­tem­ber 11 – 12, 2014 in Syd­ney at the Radis­son Blu Plaza Hotel Syd­ney.

    Top­ics of the Summit

    The Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment have announced a review of what col­lec­tively forms Australia’s AML/​CTF régime — encom­pass­ing the AML/​CTF Act, Reg­u­la­tions and Rules. The impe­tus toward meet­ing its inter­na­tional oblig­a­tions whilst offer­ing prac­ti­cal effec­tive­ness for the effi­cient con­duct of busi­ness, is an ongo­ing chal­lenge for all stakeholders.

    From the com­plex­ity of the exist­ing régime to the reg­u­la­tory bur­den that is placed on large and small report­ing enti­ties, a dynamic and proac­tive approach is required to tackle acquis­i­tive crime. The cur­rent AG review into AML and the impend­ing reg­u­la­tory changes presents impec­ca­ble tim­ing for the National Anti-​Money Laun­der­ing Sum­mit, to host stake­holder par­tic­i­pa­tion in dis­cussing the major issues.

    These include:

    • Pol­icy
    • Reg­u­la­tory burden
    • An AML/​CTF snapshot
    • Com­pli­ance challenges
    • Enforce­ment
    • Imple­men­ta­tion of tranche two
    • Impact of technology
    • Pri­vacy
    • Record keep­ing
