Webinar Description

The introduction of the 5th Anti-Money Laundering Directive (AMLD5) which was published on June 19, 2018, amends the 4th Anti-Money Laundering Directive and intends to make the legal situation on the cryptocurrency market more transparent. Thus, the AMLD5 is enriched with regulations related to cryptocurrency businesses, aiming to strengthen the barriers to fighting against money laundering and restrain terrorist financing.

While the growth of the cryptocurrency market has been exponential, it still lacks a consistent legal and regulatory framework. In the light of this, the 5th Directive is of significant importance since it constitutes a key development and a uniform framework for regulators across the EU to adopt. Along with this, emerging technologies, like Blockchain, are revolutionizing the compliance framework by creating innovative and effective ways ranging from transaction monitoring and regulatory reporting to identity management and compliance improvement.

  • Perform and apply the 5th AML updated provisions and rules to internal AML policies and manuals to ensure compliance.
  • Document whether their business falls within the updated AML provisions regarding obliged entities
  • Comprehend emerging technology and blockchain-reliant businesses (like crypto exchange, and wallet providers) and how they operate
  • Comprehend the main amendments and developments brought by the 5th Anti-Money Laundering Directive
