GoAML Registration Encouraged


The Criminal Justice (Money Laundering/Terrorist Financing) Act 2010 as amended, sets out the obligations on designated persons in relation to suspicious transaction reporting. Designated persons are obliged to make suspicious transactions reports (STRs) to both the Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU) and Revenue if they know, suspect, or have grounds to suspect that a client has been or is engaged in money laundering or terrorist financing.

In order to make a report to the FIU, designated persons must first register with Go AML here.

Members are encouraged to register with GOAML even if they do not have an STR to make. The GoAML Message Board is a two-way secure communication between FIU and reporting entities/stakeholders. It provides for STR acknowledgements, alerts, trends, typologies, etc. To date it has been primarily used for alerts and feedback on using GoAML. However, in future it will also focus on the dissemination of information regarding AML trends and typologies.
