EU Anti Money Laundering directives: a summary
In recent months, there has been a worrying increase in online fraud and the incidence of cybercrime. EU anti money laundering directives are issued periodically by the European Parliament to be implemented by member states as part of domestic legislation. The European anti-money laundering directives (AMLD) are intended to prevent money laundering or terrorist financing and establish a consistent regulatory environment across the EU. This is done by addressing the emerging money laundering and terrorist financing typologies, helping to close AML compliance gaps.
