Conveyancing Quality Scheme Update – AML Risk Assessments

New Core Practice Management Standards (CPMS) for CQS (Conveyancing Quality Scheme)-accredited firms came into effect from 1 May 2022.

We have reviewed and enhanced our Intelliworks conveyancing workflows in light of the new Standards. As part of our ongoing commitment to ensuring that the workflows are CQS compliant, we have updated them with several enhancements to address the key areas of change identified within the new Standards.

For example, we have enhanced the Purchase, New Build Purchase, Sale and Remortgage workflows to include a new, integrated process to allow users to carry out anti-money laundering (AML) risk assessments at key stages throughout the transaction.

In response to customer feedback, and to assist users in demonstrating compliance with Requirement 5.12, we have added a new ‘status bar’ to the Scheduled Task List, to visually track the completed AML reviews:

Full details of all updates included within the release can be found in the ‘Workflow Release Notes’ section within the Intelliworks case, or by clicking on this link: CQS Workflow Updates

Intelliworks case management software from Ochresoft has been designed to reflect the spirit and the high standards set out in the Conveyancing Quality Scheme. Our specialist legal workflows are based on conveyancing good practice and the principles of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Protocol, which, whilst mandatory only for CQS-accredited firms, is commonly recognised and adopted by the wider conveyancing profession.
