What is a DPMS compliance regime?

Canada’s Financial Transactions and Reports Analysis Centre (FINTRAC) requires every Dealer in Precious Metals and Stones to build and implement a compliance regime. Your compliance regime requirements are virtually the same as those faced by financial institutions, such as Canada's large banks. Your compliance regime must address at least the following five elements:

  • Appointment of a compliance officer,
  • Assessment and documentation of money laundering and terrorist financing risks to which you, as a DPMS, are exposed and the measures you are taking to mitigate those risks,
  • Development and application of written and current compliance policies and procedures,
  • Implementation and documentation of an ongoing training program, and
  • Audit and review of the effectiveness of the risk-based assessment, the written policies and procedures, and the training program. The audit and review must be completed every two years.
