Said Gardner: “JVC’s sessions at Conclave and Instore include important information for retailers, such as: new developments in legal risk
management; avoiding government action and/or lawsuits; operating a compliant business in the 21st century; and updates on jewelers’ anti-money laundering (AML) obligations. At the beginning of 2010, the IRS began to review jewelers’ AML programs. Right now, it is particularly important for retailers who must comply with AML requirements to have their programs completely up to date.”
