Jersey FIU grading SARS – November 2023 changes


Changes to the PolSAR Portal - Grading of Submissions

As part of the FIU’s drive to enhance the quality of submissions, they have provided quality feedback to submitters since April 2023.

As a next stage development, from 1st November 2023, they will change the grading feedback summary wording to be as follows:

  • Good Standard – Relevant information has been provided with good detail, and the correct fields are used for the appropriate information.
  • Meets Standard – The SAR meets the required standard to enable the FIU to clearly understand what suspicious activity is being reported. There may be areas of the SAR that can be improved or further information requested.
  • Below Standard – The SAR does not meet the minimum required standards. The information provided lacks sufficient detail to enable the FIU to understand the suspicious activity being reported clearly.

So that you know, all feedback is provided to the submitter to help them with improving their future submissions.

If the submitter has more information about the SAR, please give a Continuation Report via the PolSAR Portal.

Should you have any questions regarding the above changes or any other part of the portal, contact the FIU by emailing
