New EU rules to combat money laundering and terrorist financing

FATF’s latest Ministerial Declaration
PSR consultation on APP reimbursement requirement compliance

The European Parliament adopted a package of laws strengthening the EU’s ability to tackle money laundering and terrorist financing.

The package consists of:

  • The Sixth Anti-Money Laundering Directive (6MLD)
  • The EU ‘Single Rulebook’ Regulation
  • The Anti-Money Laundering Authority (AMLA) Regulation

If adopted by the Council, the new rules will introduce:

  • New powers for Financial Intelligence Units #FIUs to analyse and detect ML/TF cases as and suspend suspicious transactions;
  • A limit on large cash payments up to EUR10,000;
  • Due diligence requirements for football clubs and agents from 2029; and
  • AMLA, a central financial watchdog supervising high-risk entities.

The next steps will include formal adoption by the Council and publication of the laws in the Official Journal of the EU.
