List of Positions for Cook Islands Politically Exposed persons:
The purpose of this list is to assist reporting institutions with meeting their obligations under section 31(1) of the Financial Transactions Reporting Act 2017 to identify Cook Islands politically exposed persons. It identifies the job titles or positions considered by the Financial Intelligence Unit as meeting the definition of politically exposed person domestically under paragraph (a) only. Reporting institutions are still required to obtain information relating to paragraphs (b) to (e) of that definition. The list does not make any determinations of risk.
The list is current as of 1 December 2017 and may be amended from time to time.
