1. Bank representatives will be encouraged to verbalise the main aspects of bank account opening and customer introductions in which practitioners are generally deemed to be lacking sufficient preparation and/or adherence to AML rules such as the Implementing Procedures Part I (applicable to all subject persons). Specific areas of concern may be highlighted during the workshop.
2. Bank representatives are to provide guidance, in general terms, of the procedures adopted by the sector in relation to bank account opening, and also give an indication of the type of business and characteristics of structures they are willing to accept, or not. To the extent possible, the use of specific examples, such as clear ownership structures vs complex ownership structures, would enhance the discussion.

Participants will be given the opportunity to ask questions during the session.
