Entry into force Fourth Anti-Money Laundering Directive

On 24 July 24, the Act (link, in Dutch) and the Decree (link, in Dutch) for the implementation of the Fourth Anti-Money Laundering Directive (nr. 2015/849) have been published in the Bulletin of Acts and Decrees. The package of measures will take effect on 25 July 2018. The Minister deviates from the standard policy of the entry into force period. This is justified in the eyes of the Minister because it concerns the implementation of European legislation that had to be transposed into Dutch legislation before 26 June 2017.
