The European Commission presents a new AML package
Regulation establishing a new EU AML/CFT Authority:
https://ec.europa.eu/finance/docs/law/210720-proposal-aml-cft-authority_en.pdfIn addition to the creation of a new EU agency, the European Commission proposed:
- a revision of the 2015 Regulation on Transfers of Funds:
- a new regulation to harmonise the application of the rules across the EU:
- and a proposal for a Sixth Anti-Money Laundering Directive:
The legislative package will be discussed by the European Parliament and Council. The AML authority should be operational in 2024 and will start the work of direct supervision slightly later, once the directive has been transposed and the new rules start to apply.
