AML/CFT Risk Assessment Checklist for Credit Unions
Credit unions must structure their compliance programs to be risk-based to ensure that AML/CFT compliance programs are reasonably designed to meet regulatory requirements.

Although each credit union’s risk process will differ slightly, the best practice steps in this AML/CFT risk assessment checklist will enable your credit union to understand and justify its risk-focused compliance program.
Please note: This is not an AML/CFT risk assessment template, because each credit union’s process will differ.
