On 1st March 2019, with the participation of the Council of Europe expert Mr. Giuseppe Lombardo and the EU High level advisor Mr. Igoris Krzeckovskis, were organized 2 workshops on the presentation of the Handbook for the Application of Measures for Preventing and Combating Money laundering and Terrorist Financing by Designated Non‐Financial Businesses and Professions.
The meeting was attended by 65 reporting entities, such as: audit entities, notaries, lawyers, real estate agents, as well as representatives of supervisory authorities: State Chamber for Marking Supervision, Ministry of Finance, Notary Chamber and Union of Lawyers.
The Handbook was developed by the Office for Prevention and Fight against Money Laundering with the support of the Council of Europe and European Union Project “Controlling Corruption through Law Enforcement and Prevention” (CLEP).
The main purpose of this Handbook is to facilitate the implementation and enforcement of the provisions of Law no. 308 of December 22, 2017 "on prevention and combating money laundering and terrorism financing" by the reporting entities as subjects of the supervisory regime, representing an additional mechanism for applying the provisions of the legislation in the field.
