This is reflected in a series of comprehensive modules on: risk assessment, customer due diligence (CDD), ongoing monitoring, suspicious transactions reporting, recordkeeping, training and audit. The handbook draws on the expertise of AML/CFT specialists from across the spectrum. It has benefited from the input, reviews and comments of lawyers, law enforcement officers, compliance officers of lead financial institutions, financial intelligence units analysts and banking supervisors. Due to the success of international standard-setting efforts, AML/CFT laws and regulations are harmonized to a very good extent all around the world. This handbook is not grounded in the experience of one specific country. Instead, it reflects the common denominators of AML/CFT preventive measures around the world. It is also grounded in the best practices of international financial institutions. In order to be useful to all professionals around the world, the content of this handbook is carefully drafted to avoid reflecting the features specific to some countries and not applicable in others. Where domestic variations are pronounced, the manual directs the practitioners to check the legal position and informs them of the areas where variations may occur.
