AML 11.2.4 Guidance

1. The individual appointed as the deputy MLRO of an Authorised Firm need not apply for Authorised Individual status for performing the Licensed Function of Money Laundering Reporting Officer, subject to Rules in GEN section 11.6.
2. A Relevant Person other than an Authorised Firm should make adequate arrangements to ensure that it remains in compliance with this module in the event that its MLRO is absent. Adequate arrangements would include appointing a temporary MLRO for the period of the MLRO's absence or making sure that the Relevant Person's AML systems and controls allow it to continue to comply with these Rules when the MLRO is absent.
