Training Seminar on EU AML/CFT risk assessment methodologies and EU and FATF guidelines for liberal professions

April 28 - April 29

#LightSeminar_Brussels

 

Background

LIGHT aims to enhance the functional competency of lawyers and notaries through four main profiles, which will let training participants:

  • Acquire experimental insight and knowledge in EU law on AML/CFT;
  • Improve their capacity in ML/FT risk assessment;
  • Perform AML/CFT reporting obligations;
  • Analyse business relationships without intermediates.

Four high-level seminars will cover these profiles. The transnational character of these training activities makes it possible for legal practitioners of different nationalities to attend the event and is meant as a useful tool to promote trust among legal practitioners of different countries and for ensuring smoother cross-border judicial proceedings. Moreover, being face-to-face, the seminars should help create an informal network. Such network may be useful for solving everyday cross-border issues.

Each seminar will combine theory and practice, such as case studies and workshops.

 

The Training Seminar

Ceplis, the European Council of Liberal Professions, is organising the second training seminar in Brussels, with support from the coordinator of the project Confprofessioni (Italian Confederation of Liberal Professions). The seminar will deal with EU risk assessment methodologies on AML/CFT and EU and FATF guidelines for liberal professions. It will also focus on mitigating vulnerabilities, with a workshop dedicated to gathering best practices in this field.

As for the agenda, it is worth mentioning in particular the two main trainers: Ms. Pauline Maufort, member of the Brussels bar and lawyer specialised in private tax and property law, tax and financial crime procedures, anti-money laundering; Michael Fernandez-Bertier, director of the Department on financial crime prevention at Compliance4Business. Judge Claise, examining magistrate expert specialised in the fight against white-collar crimes, and representatives of European institutions will also join the seminar and bring their view on the new EU AML/CFT legislative package and on the fight against financial crimes.
