EC Review of the Third AML Directive – proposed Fourth AML Directive

 

The Third Anti-Money Laundering (AML) Directive sets out a framework which is designed to protect the financial system against the risks of money laundering and terrorist financing and is to a large extent based on international standards adopted by the Financial Action Task Force (FATF).

Further to the publication of a revised set of international standards on 16 February 2012, the Commission committed itself to rapidly updating the EU legislative framework to incorporate the necessary changes.

The Commission has undertaken a comprehensive review of the Third AML Directive and proposed the Fourth AML Directive. FEE has contributed at all stages.
