Compliance Officer Course

Under the AML/CTF Act and Rules, clubs with more than 15 EGMs must appoint an AML/CTF Compliance Officer responsible for their venue’s compliance obligations. 

ClubSAFE provides a comprehensive AML/CTF Compliance Officer training course. Participants receive an understanding of their role, plus all the tools needed to achieve and maintain compliance and respond effectively to AUSTRAC’s Annual Compliance Report.  

ClubsNSW also provides: 

  • AML/CTF staff awareness training delivered either online, regional training seminar or in-house (Premium only) 
  • recommendations on service providers to assist clubs in developing a compliant AML/CTF Program 
  • assistance conducting an independent review of your club’s AML/CTF Program 
  • advice and assistance on AML/CTF compliance. 

AML/CTF Advisory Service

ClubsNSW offers telephone and email support for Members relating to AML/CTF matters and issues. Advice and support can be provided for a range of topics, including: 

  • successful implementation of your AML/CTF Program 
  • responses to AUSTRAC notices 
  • assist in the completion of the annual compliance report 
  • board and senior management oversight.  

AML/CTF Advisory Program

Premium Service

To ensure premium members have a fit-for-purpose and effective AML/CTF program in place, new members will have their program reviewed by an expert consultant. Those without a program will have one developed for them.  

Following this, ClubSAFE will support the club to ensure the program’s effective implementation through its venue and operations. 

Independent Review (Biennial)

Premium Service

Every two to three years, AUSTRAC requires clubs to undertake an independent review of their program’s effectiveness, whether it is still fit for the venue’s particular risk profile and how it is implemented. ClubSAFE coordinates your independent review, using experts entirely separate to the development and implementation of the program. 

Appointed by the club, the independent reviewer should have no vested interest in the outcome of the review or have worked or been involved with the development of the club’s AML/CTF program. The Australian Standard for Compliance Programs (AS3806) recommends the review be carried out by a competent person who is free from bias and conflict of interest. 

Annual Health Check 

Premium Service

ClubSAFE provides biennial reviews (opposite years from independent review) of your clubs AML/CTF Program against its money laundering risks and obligations. The health check consists of a preliminary desk-based review of Parts A and B of a Club’s AML/CTF program, the ML/TF Risk Assessment, policies, and procedures.
