The Certified Global Sanctions Specialist (CGSS) Certification is an ACAMS (Association of Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialists) certification that equips an organization’s workforce with a credential that represents a serious commitment to compliance with sanctions, in a world of increasingly complex laws, regulations, and policies. CGSS is global, allowing multinational institutions to strategically and uniformly apply the same programme for all global employees.
Becoming CGSS-certified demonstrates to regulators a strong commitment to compliance in sanctions, as CAMS (the gold standard in AML certification) demonstrates to AML compliance.
Why Professionals Choose this Qualification?
CGSS (Certified Global Sanctions Specialist) is a new ACAMS certification that demonstrates a commitment to sanctions compliance, similar to how the CAMS demonstrates a commitment to AML compliance. More than 50 sanctions experts across the public and private sectors are contributing toward the CGSS credential.
