Das EU-Anti-Geldwäsche-Paket (Modul I)

What are the consequences of the most comprehensive legislative changes since 1991? 

The EU anti-money laundering regulatory package (two regulations and one directive, a total of almost 300 pages of legal text) was promulgated on June 19, 2024. The provisions, which are far-reaching in many respects, will largely come into force in July 2027. Even if this does not sound urgent at first glance, there is no time to lose in preparing for the new regulatory world. After all, it is not only regulations that are changing, but also structures.

Association of German Banks and Banking Academy have therefore decided to support the implementation measures in the member banks at an early stage with a staggered range of information. In a webinar series consisting of five modules, our experts will discuss the new features of the AML package, answer your questions and provide information on the potential technical and operational changes that banks should already be addressing.
