Legislation: Simplified due diligence

During compliance checks on businesses compliance officers should make sure businesses are aware of any simplified procedures and encourage them to use them. Although it is not an offence if a business does not use simplified due diligence, where appropriate it is in line with the risk based approach that relevant businesses do not impose unnecessary burdens on their customers. Further details about simplified due diligence can be found at section 7.11 in MLR-8.and Regulation 13 MLR2007.
