Preventing money laundering and terrorist financing – EBF responds to EU consultation
BRUSSELS, 26 August 2020 – The European Banking Federation has responded to the European Commission consultation on an action plan for a comprehensive European Union policy on preventing money laundering and terrorist financing (AML/CFT).
The EBF fully supports the Commission’s overarching objective of addressing the inefficiencies of the current EU AML/CFT framework. The EBF believes that the action plan is going in the right direction and appreciates that it is in many aspects very much in line with the AML Blueprint published in March by the EBF.
To constructively contribute to this consultation, the EBF has conducted a gap analysis to identify in the light of our Blueprint those topics where the EBF has further input to provide. The EBF’s detailed answers to the questions of the consultation paper on the 6-pillar Action Plan.
