Denmark Hosts Comprehensive AML Training for Key Stakeholders

Denmark’s gambling regulator, Spillemyndigheden, is collaborating with various national security branches to host an extensive Anti-Money Laundering (AML) training session. The event, scheduled for October 31st in Copenhagen, aims to enhance the understanding and execution of AML responsibilities among relevant stakeholders.

Key Participants and Focus

The training will gather a diverse group of organizations, including the Danish Business Authority, the Danish Security and Intelligence Service, Denmark’s Financial Intelligence Unit, the Danish Bar and Law Society, the Danish Tax Agency, the National Special Crime Unit, and the Danish Financial Supervisory Authority.

These entities will provide a comprehensive perspective on the AML obligations under Danish law.

Training Format and Participation

The training is designed to be interactive, combining plenary sessions with group discussions to facilitate knowledge sharing and engagement. Spillemyndigheden highlighted the event’s emphasis on practical case studies, which have been developed with input from various industries to cover a broad spectrum of scenarios.

“The event is a mix of plenary training and group dialogues, and there will be ample opportunity for knowledge sharing and questions. The cases are so broad that there will be angles from all the above organisers and the different cases have been created with input from the industries.”

Application and Attendance Details

Interested parties who are required to report under the Danish AML Act are encouraged to apply by September 15th. Due to limited seating and the absence of online participation options, early application is advised to secure a spot.

This collaborative initiative underscores Denmark’s commitment to strengthening AML practices across multiple sectors, ensuring that all stakeholders are well-equipped to meet regulatory requirements and combat financial crime effectively.
