During the period under review, Accountable Institutions such as forex bureaus, insurance companies, market operators, selected Designated Non-Financial Businesses and Professions (DNFBPs) and some telecommunication companies were trained.  The training sessions were aimed at creating awareness and deepening the understanding of participant’s knowledge on AML/CFT issues as well as their reporting obligations under the Act 749 as amended. The topics for the training programmes included the following:

  • Know Your Customer/Customer Due Diligence (KYC/CDD) measures.
  • Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing emerging trends
  • Findings of the National Risk Assessment
  • Updates on Ghana’s 2nd Round of Mutual Evaluation
  • Asset Recovery and Management

Also, at the same workshop, the FIC took the opportunity to register two (2) DNFBPs on the goAML software, the reporting portal for the submission of Suspicious Transactions Reports (STRs) and Cash Transactions Reports (CTRs).
