Annual Health Check
Under the AML/CTF Act and AUSTRAC Rules, a club with more than 15 EGMs must have its AML/CTF program assessed annually 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.
Under the AML/CTF Act and AUSTRAC Rules, a club with more than 15 EGMs must have an AML/CTF program in place. ClubSAFE can recommend providers to ensure that clubs are meeting their legal obligations.
Independent Review (Bi-annual)
Under the AML/CTF Act and AUSTRAC Rules, a Club with more than 15 EGMs is required to undertake an independent review to assess the effectiveness of its AML/CTF program and compliance with the Rules.
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 Club’s AML/CTF program. The Australian Standard for Compliance Programs (AS: 3806) recommends that the review should be conducted in accordance with good review and audit practices. The review should be carried out by a competent person who is free from bias and conflict of interest.
Money laundering, terrorism financing and serious financial crime are very real issues with very real impacts on the lives of everyday Australians. They also create regulatory and reputational risks for the club industry, especially due to the conduct of gambling and high levels of cash transitions.
