The head of the Indonesian Financial Transactions Report and Analysis Centre (PPATK) has issued a new regulation on the procedure for the submission of reports on suspicious financial transactions. The regulation, which came into force on December 21 2010, replaces the former regulations on the same subject matter (Decrees 2/6/KEP.PPATK/2003 and 217/KEP.PPATK/2003).
The preamble to the regulation cites three purposes for its issue:
The new PPATK regulation imposes on financial services providers an obligation to report suspicious financial transactions. Article 1 defines a 'financial transactions' as a transaction which:
A suspicious financial transaction report may be submitted either electronically or non-electronically – the procedures for each method are provided in Articles 4 and 5, respectively. All such reports must be submitted no later than three working days after their discovery, following which the reporting party must submit the supporting documents within three working days. PPATK has the right to ask for additional documents.
Financial services providers which fail to report suspicious financial transactions to PPATK face the penalties set down in Chapter VI of the regulation. The reporting obligation began to apply to commercial banks on January 21 2011 and will apply to rural banks, insurance companies/brokers, foreign exchange traders, investment managers, financial institutions, pension funds and other such institutions from March 31 2011. Sample formats for the reports are provided in the appendix to the regulation.
