A Guide to the Sixth Anti Money Laundering Directive ‘6AMLD’ - What’s New?
6AMLD was published on 2 December 2018 and EU member states were required to implement it by 3 December 2020.
It is designed to harmonise the approach of EU states to the criminal offences of money laundering. Although the UK has opted out on the basis that AML offences in the UK are already sufficiently strong, it is essential for regulated businesses in the UK with a presence in other EU states to anticipate the changes to money laundering laws that will affect their continental offices.
One striking change under 6AMLD will be the emphasis of corporate liability for money laundering and a recommended suite of stiff penalties.
