1.0 introduction

The FATF Recommendations are the internationally endorsed global standards against money laundering and terrorist financing: they increase transparency and enable countries to successfully take action against illicit use of their financial system.

In South Africa we have the Financial Intelligence Centre (“the Centre”) which is an effective financial intelligence unit.

  • The confiscation scheme is comprehensive and utilises effective civil forfeiture measures. 
  • Since 2003, South Africa has also adopted mechanisms to freeze terrorist-related assets. 
  • The FIC Act imposes customer due diligence, record keeping, and suspicious transaction reporting and internal control requirements.

1.3 Getting to know your Customer

According to FICA Section 21, these accountable institutions are obliged not to establish a business relationship (which is defined as "an arrangement between a client and an institution for the purpose of concluding transactions on a regular basis") or conclude a single transaction with a client unless they have taken prescribed steps which identify and verify that client or, if the client is acting on behalf of another person, to establish and verify the identity of that other person and the client's authority to act on that other person's behalf. The same requirements apply if another person is acting on behalf of a client.
