Understanding FICA

The Financial Intelligence Centre Act, or FICA, is South African legislation to fight financial crime. The course Understanding FICA provides clear, engaging and practical online learning for anyone employed by an accountable institution and involved in the facilitating, processing or overseeing of financial transactions. This includes Key Individuals, Representatives, managers and employees

(There is another FICA course specifically for FICA Compliance Officers and Money Laundering Reporting Officers, Managing FICA, here.)

Understanding FICA provides delegates with an overview of the provisions of FICA, and a comprehensive grasp of these key topics:

  • Money laundering, terrorist financing, and proliferation financing
  • Legal framework for anti-money laundering, counter-terrorist financing, and counter-proliferation financing measures

  • Legal obligations of accountable and reporting institutions, including FIC registration, risk management and compliance program, customer due diligence, recordkeeping and reporting to the FIC

The course contains five units:

  • Unit 1: Understanding money laundering, terrorist financing and proliferation financing
