In-house AML Compliance Department Setup

In-house AML compliance department setup

The Oman market has legislation making it mandatory for entities to implement anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist financing provisions. Due to these provisions, businesses are required to comply with the same. To take care of all these compliance needs, companies need an in-house AML compliance department. This department must be headed by an AML Compliance Officer, and a team of capable AML specialists and business analysts must handle all the activities. Together they can manage the AML and CFT compliance needs of businesses.

  • Assessment of money laundering risks that a company confronts
  • Recommendation of appropriate internal controls and policies
  • Evaluation of their application
  • Risk management advisory as and when needed

An AML Compliance Department within a business guarantees that AML-specific rules and regulations are followed and that AML compliance initiatives are appropriately handled by the company.
