As criminals invent more and more ways to cover up their illegal activities, so does the need for professionals in these industries to understand their obligations under the Law but also to meticulously follow specific regulatory compliance procedures.The need for the best and most thorough management of the risks that may arise in financial transactions with clients / partners, is increasingly imperative for the financial sector as well as for lawyers and accountants.
The purpose of the seminar is to cover the provisions of the legislation on the Prevention and Combating of Money Laundering and the forthcoming changes with the implementation of the 5th and 6th European Directives. During the seminar the main parameters of the risk-based approach will be explained, the main actors, as well as the procedures to be followed by the responsible entities will be examined.
