Section of the Bank’s website devoted to anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist financing (AML/CFT): update

Through its Communication NBB_2018_04 of 8 February 2018, the National Bank of Belgium (NBB) informed financial institutions of the creation on its website of a section devoted to anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist financing (the so-called “AML/CFT site”). This AML/CFT site aims to bring together all legal and regulatory texts pertaining to anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist financing, and to specify the comments and recommendations made by the NBB on the subject.

Several series of recommendations have been published on the AML/CFT site over the course of 2018, in Dutch and in French, after consultation with the representative associations of the sectors concerned. Additionally, an unofficial translation of the entire AML/CFT site in English was released online mid-2019.

Following on this, the NBB informs you that the AML/CFT site has recently been updated. On this occasion, changes have been made in particular to the pages of the site containing comments and recommendations from the NBB on various topics. For more information, please refer to the AML/CFT site, which contains an overview of the changes made to its successive versions.
