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).

8 - After a report has been made

When an enquiry is under investigation, the investigating officer may contact the operator to ensure that he has all the relevant information which supports the original SAR. This contact may also include seeking supplementary information or documentation from the reporting operator and from other sources by way of a court order.

The investigating officer will therefore work closely with the operator, who will usually receive direct feedback on the stage reached in the investigation. There may, however, be cases when the operator cannot be informed of the state of the investigation, either because of the confidential nature of the enquiry, or because the case is currently under consideration by a court.
