NEW REPORTING PORTAL FOR REPORTING UNUSUAL TRANSACTION AT FIU CURAÇAO

The FIU is currently diligently working on the implementation of its new reporting portal, goAML.
As of January 1st, 2021, this new portal will completely replace the current FIU-reporting portal Corsys. Currently the FIU is testing the system with a select group of reporting entities. The goAML system, which has been developed specifically for FIUs by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) and which is used by many FIUs around the globe, is not only a reporting portal but will also offer a complete new analysis environment to the FIU, as well as a communication platform between FIU Curaçao and the reporting entities, their AML/CFT supervisors and other stakeholders.

In the upcoming months, the FIU will regularly provide updates, on its website, via the media and per email, to inform the reporting entities, their AML/CFT supervisors and other stakeholders regarding the process of implementing the new reporting portal and the consequences for reporting entities. The FIU will also schedule information sessions/training opportunities for all reporting sectors and will give guidance in due time on how reporting entities will have to (re)register in the new portal during the last quarter of 2020, in order to allow a smooth transition as per January 1st, 2021.

All reporting entities will have to (re)register in the last quarter of 2020 in the new goAML portal, in order to be able to submit their transaction reports as per January 1st, 2021.

As per December 31st, 2020, no internet browser will support Adobe Flash player anymore. This player (Adobe Flash) is required to use the current reporting portal Corsys. Consequently, after that date, the current reporting portal Corsys will no longer be accessible for reporting entities. Reporting will have to be done electronically, per January 1st, 2021, via the new goAML portal. Also, reporting entities will no longer be able to access their previously submitted reports in the Corsys portal after that date.

TAKE NOTICE: The FIU is currently receiving support requests from reporting entities that are already encountering problems to access Corsys, when using Google Chrome as browser. These reporting entities are advised to switch browsers first to solve this problem, before sending a support request to the FIU. You can use for example Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox.

The FIU has opened a special mailbox for all reporting entities’ specific questions and request for information on the GOAML project: goaml@fiucuracao.cw.
For general questions, please see the reporting information on our website (www.fiucuracao.cw, under the tab REPORT) or contact us via analysis@fiucuracao.cw, or by phone: 4626588.

REGISTERING IN THE NEW goAML REPORTING PORTAL AT FIU CURAÇAO


As stated in our previous press release FIU Curaçao will transition to a new reporting portal per January 1st, 2021. There is a 5-steps plan in place in order to allow for a smooth transition of all reporting entities to this new goAML portal, that will completely replace the old Corsys portal. The FIU will issue regular announcements on the way to the go-live date of the new portal.

Step 1, testing with a select group of reporting entities, is on the way. Step 2 involves training on registration in the new portal. All reporting entities will have to (re)register in the last quarter of 2020 in the new goAML portal, to be able to submit their transaction reports per January 1st , 2021. This is a process that is different from before. Even if one is already registered in Corsys, one still has to register again in goAML.

From November 16th, 2020 to November 20th, 2020 FIU Curaçao will hold short virtual instruction meetings in which all reporting entities will be instructed on the way to register in the goAML reporting portal. These meetings will be held via Webex. Attendance is by invitation only. If a reporting entity has not received an invitation, the FIU must be contacted at goaml@fiucuracao.cw.

As of November 23rd, 2020 step 3 will start: reporting entities will be able to (re)register in the goAML reporting portal.

The FIU has opened a special e-mail address for all reporting entities’ to ask specific questions and other requests for information regarding the goOAML project: goaml@fiucuracao.cw.

From November 30th, 2020 to December 11th, 2020 FIU Curaçao will hold virtual training sessions on how to report unusual transaction in the new goAML reporting portal. The training sessions will be sector specific.

All reporting entities will have to learn how to report unusual transactions in the new goAML portal, in order to be able to submit their transaction reports per January 1st , 2021. This reporting process is different from reporting in Corsys.

The goAML implementation process is on a tight schedule. We aim for a smooth transition for all of our many reporting entities. Reporting entities are kindly asked to take good notice of our notifications and take part in virtual instruction meetings, in order to be ready for reporting in the new portal per the 1st of January 2021.
