The BSB will shortly launch the 2012 round of chambers monitoring, which will build on the results of the 2010 monitoring process.
On 11 June 2012, all chambers and sole practitioners will be sent a link to complete an online compliance questionnaire. The questionnaire will focus on compliance with chambers complaints handling and the Money Laundering Regulations 2007. It is a regulatory requirement for all chambers to complete and submit this questionnaire.
One of the benefits of the 2010 round was in assisting chambers to identify and address areas of non-compliance. The 2012 round will maintain a similar focus and enforcement action will only be considered for those who do not engage with the process or who refuse to address identified concerns.
