Duties and responsibilities under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002

This advice explains how operators can make sure they and their employees comply with their obligations under The Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 (POCA).

13 - Training

Under POCA, employees face criminal penalties if they are involved in money laundering, unless they make a report of known or suspected money laundering activity. It is important, therefore, that employees are made aware of their legal obligations and how to correctly discharge them.

Operators should also take reasonable steps to ensure that employees are aware of the money laundering risks faced by the operator, the operator’s procedures for managing those risks, the identity and responsibilities of the person responsible for making reports to the NCA, and the potential effect of a breach of POCA on the operator and its employees.

Training is discussed further in Part 2 - the advice in this guide.
