Extreme change for accountable institutions
The RMCP has replaced Section 42 of the primary FIC Act. And if foolish enough to ignore, it could cost you R10 million in penalties for non-compliance in your personal capacity and up to R50 million as a company!
Section 42 of FICA requires every Accountable Institution adopt an AML Compliance Program that is reasonably designed to ensure proper record keeping and reporting of certain transactions, and to prevent your business from being used to launder money. This RMCP must thoroughly spell out an Accountable Institution’s FICA compliance approach in respect of three widespread duties, namely;
- KYC – know-your-customer
- record keeping and reporting
Although the requirement to implement a Risk Management and Compliance Programme (section 42 of the FIC Act) came into effect on 2 October 2017, accountable institutions have been granted some time to implement this. Accountable institutions must have a fully adopted and implemented RMCP by 2 April 2019. No extensions will be given.
How we can help? We, at Simply Learn, wishes to make the FICA Risk Management and Compliance Programme requirement as easy as possible for you to achieve.
