Under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 (POCA) and the Money Laundering Regulations 2017, when there is evidence of money laundering, the nominated officer (also known as the Money Laundering Reporting Officer or MLRO) must report this to the National Crime Agency (NCA). The NCA is the designated authority for receiving reports of suspicious activity related to money laundering and other financial crimes. 

Key Point: The NCA is the primary body responsible for handling reports of money laundering. Solicitors and their firms have a legal obligation to report any suspicions of money laundering to the NCA to ensure compliance with anti-money laundering regulations.
