The project is focusing on raising the standards of AML prevention and detection around the world. SG:certified and Crucial Compliance will utilise new AML research and best practices from regulated jurisdictions to establish the standards.
The two parties say the programme builds on their previous work on improving AML within the gambling industry. They say initiative will help bridge the gap between AML education and the execution of specialist workshops and training modules.
AML training from Crucial Compliance is already available within the SG:certified compliance dashboard. This covers operators improving trust with trust customers, maintaining their operational integrity and combating financial crime.
AML initiative aims to make industry safer
“We are passionate about working collaboratively with others to make the gambling industry a safer and more sustainable place,” SG:certified communications director Vanessa Simpson said.
“Crucial Compliance is a company with a similar mission. It’s ideal for us to be working with them to create a training and assessment programme.”
Crucial Compliance’s regulatory compliance consultant, Sonia Wasowska, added: “It’s exciting to work with SG:certified to develop an assessment and training programme that is fit for purpose to meet the ever-changing needs of the industry.
“Our teams are unified in our desire to foster a community of like-minded compliance and ESG professionals who rely on research and data to improve the delivery and execution of compliance, AML and safer-gambling programmes worldwide.”
