SRA Update

Welcome to Issue 72 of SRA Update. We have announced the date of the launch of our Standards and Regulations – November 25 – so everyone has plenty of time to prepare. We will be publishing guidance and supporting material over the months to come. Also coming down the line is our two-yearly collection of your diversity data. We have already notified your firms about small changes to the questions we are asking to make the collection as straightforward as possible for everyone. 

Finally, we are continuing to focus on tackling money laundering, with our new report looking at the area of trust and company services work showing that many firms have more to do. Our new Warning Notice reminds you all of the obligation for every firm to have a full AML risk assessment as required by the legislation.
