MICA Regulation and Crypto-Assets Policy

ΠΕΡΙΓΡΑΦΗ

The 5th AML Directive was only the first step towards regulating crypto-assets and crypto-activities in terms of anti-money laundering.  The Directive only covers specific crypto assets under the “virtual currencies” term and limited crypto-activities. Each EU Member State transposed the Directive differently and developed its own regulatory regime for transactions associated with “virtual currencies” creating regulatory fragmentation and the scope for regulatory arbitrage.  The 5th AML Directive does not offer a harmonized regulatory framework for crypto-assets; indeed, it introduces a baseline framework with limited scope. 

This issue is addressed by the Markets in Crypto-Assets Regulation (MiCAR) (an upcoming EU Regulation expected to come into force in early 2023 and apply in 2024). MiCAR seeks to establish an EU legal framework for crypto assets and intends to expand and encourage the use of the distributed ledger technology (DLT), a transformative technology, in the financial industry by creating a comprehensive regulatory framework.  MiCAR aims to regulate most crypto-assets currently outside of regulatory scope and bring within scope numerous activities and services concerning crypto-assets expanding the notion of crypto-asset service providers. 

At the same time, the EU is considering and carrying out important regulatory developments regarding the AML regulation of crypto assets. The upcoming EU AML Package deals with AML matters in a more harmonized and enhanced way, offering advanced tools to authorities to combat AML risks and covering more AML areas. In this context, the EU AML Package enhances the regulation of crypto-assets for AML. The new AML package will oblige providers of services concerning crypto-assets, as expansively defined in MiCAR, to comply with AML requirements. Hence, the AML Package combined with MiCAR, is bound to create legal certainty and enhance security regarding the use of crypto assets, increase the AML checks in the crypto-asset space, promote innovation and fair competition in the European financial market and make sure that there is consumer protection and market integrity. 

This highly researched and experience-driven course explores the MiCAR proposal which will soon become a key component of EU financial regulation, and gives emphasis on what is being regulated and the key objectives under MiCAR.  Participants will understand what is and what is not a crypto-asset as well as the services covered under MiCAR.  Furthermore, they will understand who will be impacted by the EU’s flagship MiCA regulation and they will discuss MiCAR’s interaction with other regulatory frameworks. In this context, participants will learn about the AML package and how it affects crypto-asset activities and services.  The course is vital for professionals, practitioners, supervisors, policymakers, and financial institutions who wish to explore the development of the fast-evolving crypto market.
