AML News July 2020

On 26th June 2020, the national delegations of the Council of Bars and Law Societies had the opportunity to discuss the Training Needs Assessment (TNA), one of the key deliverables of the project, which will be used as the basis for developing a strategy to offer training for lawyers on their legal obligations under the EU legal framework on AML/CTF. The TNA has now been sent to the European Commission (DG FISMA) for validation. At the same time, the project team has started to work in the strategy that needs to be presented to the EC by the end of October 2020. The strategy will be tested through the organisation of pilot cross-border activities (for trainers and for lawyers) in 2021.
