Jersey New SAR Template go live date - 1 FEBRUARY 2022
The current SAR Template will be replaced by a new one on the above date. This new SAR Template has been the culmination of collaborative working with a dedicated industry SAR Template User Group and other key stakeholders.
The purpose of the changes will allow for a more detailed, clear and methodical way of reporting of ML/TF suspicion and any requisite consent requests. In turn this will result in the JFIU being able to action suspicion of ML/TF and consent matters in a more expeditious way. It will also allow for better statistical information to be gathered by the JFIU leading to better outreach and engagement with industry of current ML/TF trends and identified typologies.
In contemplation of this important change the JFIU will provide visual instruction through a webinar presentation which will be released shortly taking you through the steps of using the new SAR Template; however, in advance of this and to assist users of POLSAR to transition easier please see the detailed user guide attached to POLSAR which can be found in the help section after you have logged in. In releasing the User Guide early we trust this should assist submitters of SARs to be aware of the changes to the template and further assist in any reviews you may wish to undertake in respect of internal process and procedures with regard to both internal and external reporting.
