New e-learning modules now available

AUSTRAC has released two new anti-money laundering and counter-terrorism financing (AML/CTF) e-learning modules.

These modules are aimed at all businesses regulated by AUSTRAC, and focus on:

  • conducting enhanced customer due diligence (ECDD)
  • submitting suspicious matter reports (SMRs).

They will help you to better understand:

  • how and when to conduct ECDD
  • the requirements and reasons for ECDD
  • what different types of ECDD mean in practice
  • how to identify a suspicious matter and provide quality SMRs
  • how to manage law enforcement enquiries
  • how SMRs are used using real life case studies.

These modules are the latest additions to a growing suite of e-learning resources designed to help you understand and comply with your AML/CTF obligations. They are a great resource to share with anyone who has an AML/CTF responsibility within your business. While they do not replace the mandatory AML/CTF risk awareness training that businesses are required to provide to their staff, they can help you meet this requirement.

If you have any questions about the e-learning modules, ECDD, SMRs or your AML/CTF obligations more broadly, email or phone 1300 021 037.
