Elevate Your Expertise with Infocredit Professional Education's Blockchain and AMLD5 Seminar

Infocredit Professional Education is excited to present a highly relevant and timely seminar, "Blockchain, Cryptoassets, and the 5th AML Directive", designed to provide participants with a deep understanding of the latest developments in the regulatory landscape of cryptocurrencies. This two-day seminar, scheduled for June 18-19, 2024, will be conducted in English and spans 7 intensive hours, offering invaluable insights into the intersection of blockchain technology and anti-money laundering (AML) regulations.

The 5th Anti-Money Laundering Directive (AMLD5), effective from June 19, 2018, marks a pivotal enhancement to the previous AML directives, particularly in its focus on the cryptocurrency sector. By incorporating specific regulations for cryptocurrency businesses, custodian wallet providers, estate agents, rental intermediaries, and art dealers, AMLD5 aims to fortify defenses against money laundering and terrorist financing. Its mandate to increase transparency around beneficial ownership and ensure access to reliable data is crucial for effective risk mitigation and compliance.

Despite the exponential growth of the cryptocurrency market, it continues to grapple with a fragmented regulatory environment. AMLD5 represents a significant step towards a cohesive and standardized regulatory framework across the European Union. Simultaneously, emerging technologies like blockchain are revolutionizing compliance processes, from transaction monitoring and regulatory reporting to identity management and overall compliance enhancement.
