Code of Conduct
The Anti-Money Laundering and Financial Crimes Institute LLC (the AMLFC Institute) offers the opportunity to earn certifications in the field of Anti-Money Laundering (AML) / Countering the Financing of Terrorism (CFT) / Financial Crimes Prevention (FCP). The Institute also conducts academic research and other activities for the purpose of advancing knowledge in the field(s) of AML/CFT/FCP.
The AMLFC Institute has partnered with a global network of universities promoting quality education and high standards of ethics. Its global certification organization produces a wider pool of knowledgeable workers and is recognized internationally. The AMLFC institute curriculum delivers individuals to the marketplace with practical knowledge of the AML/CFT/FCP field, competent for work in the private sector, regulatory agencies, enforcement agencies and governments. The organization is registered in the State of Florida, USA.
This Code of Professional Conduct is a statement of The Anti-Money Laundering and Financial Crimes (AMLFC) Institute. It is an expressed commitment to integrity and the highest ethical standards in all that we do. The Code defines the standards of conduct that we expect from all of our members and professionals. All professionals with an AML/CFT designation are required to earn professional educational credits through training, education and other professional development activities. This ensures that our designated members maintain and update their AML/ CFT knowledge, practice, expertise and adherence to the highest ethical standards.
The AMLFC Institute adopts AML industry principles which outline the role that practitioners and financial institutions can and should play in preventing money laundering and the financing of terrorism. AMLFC Institute Code of Professional Conduct articulates a shared view of the organizations ideals and behaviors to combat money laundering, terrorist financing and other crimes. The Code of Professional Conduct also outlines a systematic approach to decision making, in situations, where members require due process to ensure that AMLFC members and potential members maintained and upheld the integrity, ideals, and values of the AMLFC Institute.
Our hope is that this Code of Professional Conduct will be used methodically by members to ethically build upon, and professionally advance, the AMLFC Institute mission of countering money laundering and the financing of terror.
STRUCTURE OF THE CODE
The Code of Professional Conduct is divided into sections that contain standards which are aligned with the core values that were identified as most important to the Anti-Money Laundering and Financial Crimes community. The four (4) values are as follows:
Each member of the AMLFC Institute has an obligation under this code:
This Code forms part of the terms and conditions of your membership to maintain and enhance the integrity of anti-money laundering professionals and by extension your association with the AMLFC Institute. It governs your activities and covers certain continuing obligations. Upon membership, you are required to acknowledge that you have read, understand, are in compliance with, and agree to abide by this Code. This Code and its provisions shall apply to all third parties of interest, students, and members of the AMLFC even if acknowledgment delayed.
(Recommending that this code has a membership digital signature option)
This Code should be considered within the context of applicable AMLFC by-laws, policies, guidelines, and regulations in the Anti-Money Laundering and Countering Financial Terrorism Profession. All third parties with interest and all levels of membership must adhere to the Institute’s standards; in addition, members must maintain professional conduct with clients and all fellow members of the institute and the global AML/ CFT industry.
Violations of this Code will be brought to the attention of the Board of Regents (BOR) or Committee established by the BOR via resolution where there is an appropriate quorum of BOR members present.
Persons to whom the Code applies:
The Code of Professional Conduct applies to current and prospective members of the AMLFC Institute. In addition to AMLFC members, this code is applicable to non-member “third parties with interest” in the AMLFC who meet one or more of the following criteria:
- 1. Non-members who apply to commence a AMLFC certification process;
- 2. Non-members who serve in leadership or volunteer capacity;
- 3. Educators who may be affiliated with the AMLFC Institute;
- 4. Students who are currently enrolled in a program with a Partner University.
- 5. Active Associate members
- 6. Vendors, Affiliates, Advisors, Partner Universities etc.
The legitimacy of the AMLFC Institutes program rests on all members ensuring all relationships they enter into are based on ethical accountability, responsibility, and trust so that any relevant parties have common understanding as to expectations and consequences.
The legitimacy of the AMLFC Institutes programs and certifications rests on all members & third parties with interest, agreeing to protect and maintain the integrity of the testing process while pledging to adhere to the highest ethical standards during the administration and execution of the examination process. Members, potential members, and other third parties with interest found to be in breach of this process may be immediately barred from the Institute and its administered programs or conferences by any of the AMLFC Institute’s Officers. All members, potential members, or third parties of interest accused or ethical lapses and/or violations of AMLFC Institute guidelines, policies, by-laws, or widely accepted industry norms or regulations, will be afforded due process per the policy & guidelines adopted by the AMLFC Institute Leadership, the BOR, or the designated BOR sub-committee. Every member, potential member, and third party with interest in the AMLFC Institute agrees to be subject to the following terms and conditions in regards to AMLFC Certification Exams:
All AMLFC Certification examinations are considered confidential and protected by law. AMLFC potential members (students), university partners, members, and third parties with interest are expressly prohibited from disclosing, publishing, reproducing, or transmitting this exam, in whole or in part; in any form or by any means; whether auditory, pictorially, verbally, or written, electronically or mechanically, for any purpose, without the prior express written permission of The Anti-Money Laundering & Financial Crimes Institute’s (The AMLFC) Management.
In the event of any actual or related breach of the above, it is acknowledged by all that The AMLFC will incur significant and irreparable damage for every such breach; The AMLFC has no adequate remedy at law for every breach. Thereby, it is acknowledged that any breach may result in expulsion, certifications being revoked, disqualification as a candidate for future exams, and civil legal action. If you become aware of a cheating incident, it is understood that his must be reported to the AMLFC. The AMLFC Institute is committed to preserving the integrity of its certifications and its code of conduct will provide a resolution to any reported violation of policy or guidelines with the strictest confidentiality.
Overall, the AMLFC Code of Professional Conduct requires all AMLFC members to make reference to its provisions for actions or decisions relevant to the member’s professional or reputational standing; it further serves as notice of the AMLFC Institutes expectation of a responsibility by members for all actions or decisions and any subsequent consequences which may be considered by the AMLFC BOR.
COMPLIANCE WITH AMLFC INSTITUTE POLICIES, GUIDELINES, AND BY-LAWS
An AMLFC active member should accept only those assignments that are in alignment with the relevant AML/CFT policies, laws, rules and regulations that govern our work. Members who fail to do so will be subject to disciplinary action if the actions of such member are determined to have contravened AMLFC Policies. As practitioners and representatives of our profession, a member/non-member must not condone or assist others in engaging in illegal behavior, illegal or unethical conduct must be reported to the Board of Regents for a resolution. A conduct review will result through one or more of the following:
- 1. Repeated intimidation or harassment of AMLFC members or staff through threats or other means; including, but not limited to, reporting a breach of the Membership Standards by another AMLFC member without having a reasonable factual and good faith basis for doing so.
- 2. Intentional misrepresentation of AMLFC membership qualifications or credentials and presenting information known as false and with the intent of obtaining employment.
- 3.Members or potential members employing false oral or written accounts or uncorroborated claims, in the context of the anti-money laundering/ countering financial crimes profession, which may cause damage, to the reputation of the organization or constituent’s of the AMLFC Institute.
- 4. Use of AMLFC intellectual property, to include AMLFC’ name, logo, other trademarks or service marks, copyrighted information, or membership listings, without the required authorization of AMLFC Institute management.
- 5. Not adhering to AMLFC or Industry Policies, Guidelines and By-laws.
The Board of Regents (BOR) or its designated Committee is responsible for ensuring that the Code adequately provides guidance and enforces standards for the ethical conduct of all members of the AMLFC Institute. Therefore, the BOR has adopted the following approach in addressing, complaints and violations of the AMLFC guidelines as stipulated.
POTENTIALLY ACTIONABLE COMPLAINTS PROCESS
- 1. All complaints issued by any member or third party with interest must be in writing to the Board of Regents (BOR) which will regard all complaints with the highest confidentiality .
- 2. All member related complaints will be reviewed and addressed within thirty (30) days, whereas, the BOR will review and provide a written response to address all applicable concerns raised and determined whether further investigation has been authorized.
- 3. The BOR shall at its discretion investigate available circumstantial evidence to corroborate the information from each complaint involving a contended ethical violation within a potentially actionable complaint.
- 4. If the BOR determines that a violation has not occurred, the complaint shall be dismissed with written notice to the affected member, as well as to the member or third party of interest who submitted.
- 5. In the case of a legal proceeding initiated as a result of AMLC’s administration of its policies; the member shall bear their own costs and may be subject to reimbursement of AMLFC’s cost in cases where a legal petition is filed by the member in regards to AMLFC Institutes process or decisions based on the guidelines herein.
If a member who is the subject of a complaint voluntarily resigns (in writing) his or her membership in AMLFC INSTITUTE at any time during the pendency of a potentially actionable complainant; under the procedures herein, the complaint shall be dismissed with notice to known interested parties. The member’s record shall be sealed except for AMLFC Institute use, cases deemed actionable by outside legal counsel, or instances requiring the notification of law enforcement or regulatory bodies. A member who resigns his/her AMLFC membership during the pendency of a potentially actionable complaint may not apply for membership in the AMLFC INSTITUTE for a period of five years from the effective date of the resignation.
MEMBERSHIP IN THE EVENT OF CONVICTION OR REGULATORY SANCTION
If a member has been found by a recognized court to have committed a felony or has been sanctioned by a regulatory or governing body, the BOR retains the right to independently review that member’s status. Members with felony conviction not granted exception to this section of the code of conduct shall be (in the case of the member) expelled from AMLFC membership or (in the case of the applicant) denied membership. In both instances, the individual retains the right to reapply for membership after a reasonable passage of time or file an appeal for a pardon by AMLFC Institute’s Management. The judgment regarding re-entry will be determined by the BOR of the AMLFC Institute or its sub-committee designate.
SANCTIONS IN THE EVENT A CODE VIOLATION IS FOUND TO BE SUBSTANTIATED
Upon determining there is a violation of the Code of Conduct, By-laws, or Guidelines of the AMLFC Institute, the BOR shall review and make recommendations based upon the facts admitted to the record of a complaint. Recommendations Include:
- 1. Written Reprimand- Written warning that members actions are not in accordance with the AMLFC Institute’s expectation of acceptable or ethical conduct per its guidelines, by-laws or code of conduct.
- 2. Professional Service Hours with Mandatory CPE Completion – Requirement to complete services and tasks under the supervision of the AMLFC Institute or its designee which improve the AML profession; sanction will include completing mandatory CPEs that will not count toward recertification and lead to suspension if not completed timely.
- 3. Suspension - Written sanction of the member by the AMLFC INSTITUTE with a designated period of time where the member may not use the Institutes designation (may be conditionally combined with a probationary period, if desired).
- 4. Permanent Suspension - Permanent Revocation of certification & membership in the AMLFC INSTITUTE as to require re-application for membership and the retaking of the course upon a significant passage of time.
Pardon – Upon a reasonable passage of time from the BOR’s implementation of sanctions; a former or sanctioned member of the AMLFC Institute may choose to file a request for pardon in writing. The BOR will be under no obligation to consider such written requests but may determine, with discretion as granted by the bylaws of the BOR, that the sanctioned member in violation of the Code can be offered the opportunity too: submit a written acknowledgment of past violations, assure the BOR that the sanctioned conduct has ceased and commit that no future code of conduct violation will occur. Approval of the pardon will be at the discretion of the BOR or its designated sub-committee; while application for approval to recertify and hold the Institute’s designation will require the approval of AMLFC Institute Leadership.
It shall be considered a violation of the AMLFC Institute’ Code of Conduct if it is found that a member or third party with interest, participates in an event motivated by prejudice toward a person or group because of factors such as national origin, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, disability, age, gender, marital status, or any group/class protected by state or federal law which may result in stronger sanctions than noted herein.
All member’s or third party’s with interest must disclose personal or business conflict of interests with matter’s under review; further, they must abstain from discussions or votes on issues relevant to aforementioned disclosed or known conflicts.
The AMLFC Institute seeks not only to provide excellence in the services we provide to our members, but also seeks to ensure the services our members provide to their respective clients and employers remain consistent with its policies. The AMLFC Institute upholds that all parties, through practicing responsibility, integrity and compliance to the relevant internal & external policies, guidelines, jurisdiction laws, and regulations will promote excellence in the AML/ CFT Industry.
This Code of Conduct and its applicable guidelines may be reviewed periodically to ensure continued compliance with the Institutes excellence goal.
