The European Parliament has adopted its final report on the EU’s anti-money laundering package and the trialogue is scheduled for April. The forthcoming legislation follows a series of regulations over the last few years.
In this context, the session is firstly devoted to an update of legislator and industry positions on the forthcoming legislation, including on some important issues such as the need for an asset register, beneficial ownership rules and linking the AML regime to the sanctions regime.
In addition, the session will assess the key success factors for taking full advantage of the now extended EU framework on AML/CFT issues, including the rise of the AMLA. In particular, the panel should assess the feasibility of the extended set of provisions and arrangements worked out by EU policy makers.
Points of discussion
- The new AML-regime: Where do we stand and what lies ahead of us?
- What would be the reasonable cost for an adequate transparency?
- Is linking Anti-Money Laundering and Sanctions Regimes a good idea?
