AML & CTF - Malta

In 2004, Malta became the first EU member state to enact comprehensive legislation on online (remote) gambling. In the last decade, the country has been developing a complete regulatory framework for the online gambling industry. The introduction of the robust legislation, and other regulatory frameworks, has made Malta the hub for online gambling.

Our course highlights a key area of compliance, Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorist Financing (AML/CTF), in the gambling industry and covers the background and consequences of AML/CTF, including details of the laws and regulations in relation to these areas and businesses’ systems and controls that are used to prevent and detect financial crime.
