Action Plan for the Implementation of Recommendations from Money Laundering Risk Assessment and Terrorism Financing Risk Assessment
Presentation of Licences, Sombor 29. March 2013
On 29 March 2013 the APML presented licences to the candidates who passed the professional exam which was held on 18 November 2012.
In this way 90 compliance officers in accountant companies, exchange offices and ptt services who work directly on the prevention of money laundering and terrorism financing on a daily basis, will officially receive the certificate of their knowledge and skills to pursue their job responsibilities successfully.
The Amendments to the AML/CFT Law from December 2010 require from the compliance officers to have the licence for the tasks of prevention of money laundering and terrorism financing.
The purpose of introducing the licencing is twofold – namely, the certificate of necessary knowledge and skills will strengthen the system for combating money laundering and terrorism financing, but will also strengthen the position of compliance officers in their employing institutions.
