Earlier this year the European Commission published a proposal for revising the directive on money laundering and terrorist financing. As usual we are interested in comments from and insights of professionals and stakeholders. Is the Commissions’ assessment of the current situation appropriate? Are the proposals adequate to overcome the huge deficits in the fight against anti money laundering in the EU?
The proposal will now be discussed in the European Parliament and Council, before these co-legislators will work on finding a compromise text. As member of the Committee for Economic and Monetary Affairs I will be involved in the revision as co-rapporteur.
The Commission’s proposal is available online in all official languages and the Commission’s’ assessment of the current legal framework you can download here.
Please send us your input until the 17/06/2013.
