The risks of bribery and corruption, money laundering and terrorist financing cut across our profession, regardless of geography or industry specialism.

To help the profession identify and manage these risks, in February 2019 RICS published the professional statement on Countering Bribery and Corruption, Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing. This professional statement will become mandatory for all professionals and regulated firms from 1 September 2019.

This course supports the professional statement, aims to provide the profession with a clear description of how to manage these risks within the RICS Rules of Conduct.

It sets out professional and ethical behaviour by providing practitioners and firms with clear and consistent principles, informing them about what constitutes a breach of conduct.
