Over 50 employees of insurance companies took part in training on the future legislative changes in the prevention of money laundering and the financing of terrorism. The training was organised by the Polish Insurance Association in cooperation with the law firm Bird & Bird.
The training focused on new legislative obligations in risk assessment that insurance companies need to meet, changes in regulations regarding the identification of beneficial owners and politically exposed persons (PEPs), as well as increased penalties for infringing regulations on money laundering and the financing of terrorism.
During the training, the speakers also referred to several questions concerning the draft regulations, which were prepared by the Group of Experts on Anti-Money Laundering at PIA and sent to Bird & Bird beforehand. The training was interactive and the participants asked many additional questions and explained their understanding of the new legislation.
