Increase in legal requirements

In order to prevent money laundering, legislation has significantly increased the requirements placed on companies and firms in recent years. The topic of "anti-money laundering" has therefore become increasingly important within compliance. This e-learning and its modules specifically describe the structural, process-specific and personal compliance measures that can effectively prevent money laundering.

Are my customers money launderers?

Anti-Money Laundering Compliance deals with the risks that can arise from dealing with third parties outside the company. From the point of view of avoiding money laundering, it is above all dealing with your customers that is in the foreground here. In order to comply with the Money Laundering Act, every company must ensure that it is not paid by its customers with money that originates from illegal transactions such as drug trafficking or that the acquired products are used to finance terrorism.
