Carrying out the anti-money laundering check
The procedure for carrying out the anti-money laundering check is contained in Chapter 3 of the Administrative Procedures Handbook
It is important to note that while the procedures are designed so that administrative staff can carry out the check, the responsibility is on you as the solicitor. When meeting the client for the first time you must be satisfied that the check has been carried out, if it applies. Do not proceed with the consultation if you are not satisfied of this.
