RADAR's uniform approach to identifying and assessing compliance risk was developed using Promontory's considerable experience and expertise in compliance risk management.
Compliance risk assessment is a fundamental task of any compliance function. Internationally, the Basel Committee recognizes compliance risk identification and assessment as one of the six key elements of compliance. In the United States, risk assessments are especially important in the Anti-Money Laundering (AML), Fair Lending, and Identity Theft contexts. According to the Bank Secrecy Act/AML Manual, examiners should request the AML risk assessment as the first step in an examination. If there is no risk assessment or if the risk assessment is not adequate, examiners will discuss that fact with management.
RADAR is a tool for conducting compliance risk assessments according to a uniform methodology across an entire financial holding company. It can be used to conduct an AML risk assessment only or to conduct a risk assessment of all compliance obligations.
