"This review of the SARs [Suspicious Activity Reports] regime was commissioned in July 2005. Its terms of reference required it to be conducted in consultation with those who would be affected by its outcome. They invited focus on the opportunities for enhancement of the regime presented by the creation of a new national agency, the Serious Organised Crime Agency (SOCA). SOCA will, on 1 April 2006, take over from the National Criminal Intelligence Service (NCIS) responsibility for the regime's Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU) and its database of SARs. [...] The recommendations arising from this review (listed at Appendix I of the main report) fall into four groups: those concerned with SOCA's discharge of its responsibilities as the FIU; those that bear on the responsibilities of the reporting sectors; those concerned with exploitation of SARs by the regime's end users; and one on the implementation of the recommendations."
