This activity should be completed at least annually and the audit report once completed and approved by the Board must be submitted to the Financial Intelligence Unit of Trinidad and Tobago.
In selecting the professional for the External Compliance Audit, Financial Institutions are guided by Regulation 10 (5) which states that;
