Work starts on the contract awarded to ELF and CCBE by the European Commission on the topic of Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and counter Terrorism financing  – December 2019

A consortium composed of ELF and CCBE has been awarded a public contract by DG Justice on the “Development and organisation of training for lawyers on anti-money laundering and counter terrorist financing rules at EU level”. Work on this project, which will run for 24 months, started on 18th November 2019. As part of the project, ELF and CCBE met with representatives of the EC’s Unit on AML on 2nd December to kick-off the project. The project’s first activity will be to produce a questionnaire, to be answered by the national Bars and Law Societies of EU Member States, which will form the basis for drafting a Training Needs Assessment (TNA) for EU lawyers on their obligations under AML Directives.
