goAML is an integrated online software solution specifically designed by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) for use by the Financial Reporting Center (FRC). The reports sent by the reporting entities goes to a common database and becomes accessible to the Financial Reporting Center (FRC) compliance and analysis staff. The goAML system then permits data analysis. The goAML processes and analyses high volumes of reports on suspicious transactions or large cash transactions of any kind.

The reports are fully populated with all the information needed for analysis beginning from full customer details to transactional details for multiple time frames. The system also permits electronic data collection from reporting entities and competent authorities and dissemination to Law Enforcement Agencies and Competent authorities.

Suspicious Transaction Reports (STRs) and Large Cash Transaction Reports are currently received in paper format by the FRC. The manual submission of such reports makes analysis and collation of data difficult to obtain meaningful financial intelligence for dissemination.  Once the goAML is in place, FRC will no longer accept paper-based reports and all reporting entities must submit reports using the goAML.

Register to use goAML

Prior to being able to submit STR and LCTR online for the first time, the reporting entities nominates the chief compliance officer (CCO) to be the contact person for purposes of managing the goAML account. The CCO must register his/her entity on the FRC’s website.

For more information about how to register, please use this link goAML Web Registration Guide for the text guide or click the video link to watch a video. Once the registration has been completed, FRC will authorize each reporting entity as a user of goAML to submit STRs and LCTRs electronically to the FRC.

How to submit reports using goAML

See the Quick submission Guide which gives step-by-step instructions on how to submit a STR and LCTR. You can also watch a video to demonstrate the process.

Please note that while you will receive an automatic acknowledgment when an STR or LCTR is accepted by the FRC. After this acknowledgment, periodic feedback as to the status of each STR or LCTR will cease. If the FRC needs to communicate with the CCO/CO on a submitted report, this will be done via the goAML secure messaging board.
