16.-20.09.2019: FATF Standards Training Course

From 16 to 20 September 2019, Luxembourg and Germany co-hosted a five-day training at the Cité Judiciaire in Luxembourg City on the FATF standards and the implementation of efficient measures on the fight against money laundering and terrorist financing (“AML/CFT”), delivered by a team of five trainers of the FATF Training and Research Institute (FATF TREIN) based in Busan, South Korea.

The target audience of the FATF Standards Training Course included the public servants of different national authorities (both repressive and preventive levels were represented) in charge of the fight against money laundering and terrorist financing. In total, 47 delegates of 10 different FATF member countries and of four Moneyval jurisdictions, as well as one representative of the European Central Bank took part in these training sessions.

The conference was opened by Mr Michel Turk, national AML/CFT coordinator and head of the Luxembourg delegation with the FATF.

The new Vice-President of the FATF, Dr Marcus Pleyer, was also present.

The morning sessions included theoretical presentations, followed by interactive exchanges between participants and trainers on the different national approaches. The afternoon sessions focused on practical case studies where participants were split up in small groups of six to eight participants, followed by interactive discussions on the various possibilities to solve case studies.

This training offered an excellent opportunity to the 48 delegates to foster discussion between the participants and the FATF trainers on the FATF’s expectations as regards AML/CFT efficiency and best practices.
