Dear compliance professional,
As we like to keep you updated as to compliance-related issues and new developments regarding Raemonda, our software solution for Wtt/Wwft/AML compliant organizations, we share some news items with you.
DNB PUBLISHES THE WTT 2018 FACTSHEET
With the arrival of the Wtt 2018 beginning of this year, the need to provide some elaboration as to certain aspects of this law has become greater, especially now that the differences between Wwft and Wtt 2018 have become smaller. DNB has therefore published its factsheet Wtt 2018, which answers the most current questions that have been raised by compliance professionals since the implementation of the Wtt 2018.
The factsheet Wtt 2018 exists in addition to the DNB Guidance on the Wwft and SW (version of April 2015 momentarily being amended) in which the previous version of the Wtt was also being dealt with. For further reading, please visit https://www.toezicht.dnb.nl/2/50-237880.jsp
Iceland on FATF’s Gray List
In its publication as to the Improving Global AML/CTF Compliance: On-going Process, the latest version dated 18 October 2019, the FATF announced Iceland as being added to the grey list of the Financial Action Task Force, FATF – a list of countries which have failed to take sufficient measures to combat money laundering and the financing of acts of terrorism. Other countries that were added: Mongolia and Zimbabwe. Ethiopia, Sri Lanka and Tunisia were removed from the list as they show considerable improvements.
GROWING INTEREST IN DIGITAL COMPLIANCE SOLUTIONS
We notice financial institutions are growingly interested in a digital compliance solution to replace their (partly) paper compliance files, a solution Compliance Innovations can offer them.
Compliance Innovations develops compliance software (“Raemonda”) focused on international anti-money laundering (AML) and Counter Terrorism Financing (CTF) regulations. In the Netherlands these are legally reflected in the Dutch Trust Offices Supervision Act 2018 (Wtt), the Anti-Money Laundering and Anti-Terrorist Financing Act 2018 (Wwft) and the Sanctions Act (Sanctiewet 1977).
Our programme is built on the basis of a client research questionnaire by which the user needs to complete questions based on the relevant AML-law. This to demonstrate he/she meets with the legal requirements arising from current anti-money laundering and counter terrorism financing acts. Not only in the Netherlands. Our software can be adjusted to meet anti-money laundering and counter terrorism financing acts in other jurisdictions as well.
Our software has been developed by various professionals with extensive knowledge of the applicable regulations laid down in the Wtt and Wwft.
Our software includes the ‘Know Your Customer’ (KYC) and ‘Customer Due Diligence’ (CDD) functionalities. Also Transaction Monitoring on both planned transactions and processed transactions checked against the cash expectations and non-cash expectations from the Transaction Profile. The programme with the clients’ data is automatically checked on a daily basis by the integrated Sanction Checker. Further Delegation Monitoring (both internal and external) and reporting tools (such as the annual Dutch National Bank ISI form) are part of the program.
The offices of Compliance Innovations are located in Amsterdam (sales and operations) and in Enschede (software development), the Netherlands.
