Money Laundering Reporting

Back to Committees

Role of the Committee

The Money Laundering Reporting Committee is part of the regulatory function of the Society and meets on a regular basis throughout the committee year. 

The committee’s statutory remit is to report any suspicions that money laundering or an offence of financing terrorism has been committed by a practising solicitor or any other person who the Society, in the course of monitoring solicitors, suspects has been engaged in such activities to the authorities. It also deals with reporting any information it knows or believes might be of material assistance in preventing the commission of a relevant offence pursuant to the provisions of Section 19 of the Criminal Justice Act, 2011 or securing the apprehension, prosecution or conviction of a person for such a relevant offence, to An Garda Síochána.
