AML/CFT - high value dealers' regulations

AML/CFT - high value dealers' regulations
Add to CPD Planner


Lately, there have been many highly publicised seizures of high value goods at the same time as a “drug bust”. This last tranch of the AML/CFT legislation is set to stop the purchase of such goods using ill-gotten cash.

Phase 2 of the AML/CFT Act extended the regime to include high value dealers with the associated regulations coming into effect on 1 August this year. The presenters will take a practical approach in helping you understand these regulations. In particular they will identify and discuss:

  • Who is considered to be a “high value dealer”, who is not
  • What are “high value goods”
  • What is the threshold
  • What is “cash”
  • What are the compliance obligations of high value dealers.

Attend this webinar to determine which of your clients are high value dealers and the regulations apply to, and what steps they have to take in order to meet their obligations, or to seek an exemption.

Learning objectives

By attending this webinar you will be able to:

  • Identify who are high value dealers, what are high value goods, and what is “cash”.
  • Identify the steps they need to take to meet their obligations.
  • Confidently advise your high value dealer clients.

Who should attend

All lawyers, especially those who potentially have high value dealers as clients.
