The Compliance Group
We have set up this support group for any member of the Society who is acting as their firms:
- MLRO ( Money Laundering Reporting Officer)
- COLP (Compliance Officer for Legal Practice)
- COFA (Compliance Officer for Financial Administration)
We meet in Truro every three months to undertake training on a range of issues and discuss possible solutions to a variety of practical and legal issues encountered by our members. We have undergone training on how to respond to an NCA production order, how to complete a SAR and identified ways of verifying that other firms of solicitors in conveyancing transactions are genuine. At our last meeting, we designed and drafted a generic Risk and Compliance plan.
Joining the Compliance Group
If you would like to join this Group, please contact Margot and ask her to add your name to the group’s mailing list and private LinkedIn Group. You will then be able to ask for confidential help and support from the other members of the Group.
The next Meeting
Registered compliance officers will be advised when a date has been fixed for the next meeting.
