APML meets bank compliance officers
APML representatives on 5 February 2013 held the regular annual meeting with AML/CFT bank compliance officers. The meeting took place on the premises of the Association of Serbian Banks. APML director Aleksandar Vujičić opened the meeting and pointed out that the quality of the suspicious transaction reports (STRs) filed last year increased significantly. This is a result of meetings held with bank compliance officers and trainings organised for them throughout the last year. The aim of the meetings and training was to provide new insights to the compliance officers as to how best to apply the suspicious transaction indicators in their work. APML representatives said they would continue the successful cooperation also in 2013 so as to achieve a maximum efficiency of the AML/CFT system in Serbia. The bank compliance officers were also informed that the report on the National Risk Assessment, conducted jointly by all authorities which are part of the AML/CFT system, was to be finalised soon.
