On 1 February 2011 the European Commission organised a meeting with EU Privat Stakeholders on Anti-Money Laundering and Counter Terrorist Financing Policy.
The meeting was attended by representatives at EU level of all the professions subjected to AML rules: financial services (banking, insurance, credit, leasing, mortgages, e-money…), real estate agents, lawyers, notaries, trusts and estate practitioners, accountants, auditors, land casinos, online gaming and betting companies.
The main objective of the meeting was, in the context of the forthcoming revision of the Third AML Directive, to obtain feedback from private stakeholders on their experience in relation with the implementation of the Directive and the Regulation on Payer Information on a number of specific issues. A further objective was to discuss work and initiatives planned and underway in the area of anti-money laundering and counter terrorist financing – both at EU and international level.
