The EBA’s Guidelines on the policies and procedures relating to compliance management, alongside the role and responsibilities of AML/CTF compliance officers, came into force on 1st December 2022.

Published in June 2022, the guidance highlights the EBA’s expectations for credit and financial institutions, including:

  • Roles and responsibilities of the firms’ supervisory and management bodies,
  • Application of the guidelines aligned with the size, nature, and scope of firms,
  • Suitability, skills, and expertise,
  • Compliance tasks and the role of the AML/CFT Compliance Officer,
  • Outsourcing and group AML/CTF structures.

Relevant firms and compliance officials should be aware of the guidelines, designed to establish a ‘common understanding’ of best practices across the industry.
