AML Update: Bill transposing MLD4 published


A Bill which will transpose most of the Fourth Money Laundering Directive (MLD4) into Irish law has been published by the Minister for Justice.

MLD4 was due to be transposed into Irish law by 26 June 2017.

The remaining parts of the MLD4 dealing with beneficial ownership are being managed separately by the Department of Finance.
