University Anti- Money Laundering Policy


This Policy outlines how the University and its employees will manage money laundering risks and comply with its legal obligations under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002, the Terrorism Act 2002 and the Money Laundering Regulations 2007.

Current legislation applies a broad definition of money laundering activities and the range of activities where the legislation can apply. Historically, the primary focus was on banks and the financial sector but all companies and institutions, including universities, are now subject to the legislation.

The University is committed to high standards of ethical behaviour and preventing and detecting all criminal activity, including money laundering. It is no longer acceptable to conduct business on trust alone.
