New quality mark for risk and compliance experts launches
The Risk and Compliance Accreditation is aimed at individuals working in the legal sector who want to demonstrate their knowledge and skill to stakeholders and prospective clients.
It covers risk and compliance in the legal sector across three levels:
- Foundation – aimed at those with basic risk and compliance skills and knowledge
- Advanced (Legal Practice) – aimed at experts in risk management
- Advanced (AML) – aimed at experts in anti-money laundering
To qualify for accreditation, you must be able to demonstrate your knowledge, skill and competence against the syllabus (PDF 587 KB).
Anyone who passes the relevant exam and background checks may apply – you do not need to be employed or qualified as a solicitor.
If your application is successful, accreditation lasts for three years.
