New requirements about fight against money laundering and terrorist financing

The CSSF Regulation 12/02 of 14 December 2012 on the fight against money laundering and terrorist financing (the “Regulation” hereafter) has been published on 9th January 2013.

  • Risk-based approach
  • Customer due diligence

CSSF Regulation 12/02 gives a formal and legally binding nature to existing professional guidance set out previously by CSSF circulars.
