WWFT guidelines

In 2010, the IMF evaluated the Dutch compliance with the recommendations of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) with regard to the fight against money laundering and financing of terrorism. The IMF recommended that the private sector be provided with more detailed guidelines for the implementation of its statutory tasks in combating money laundering and financing of terrorism. On 21 February 2011, the Dutch Ministry of Finance published the General directive for the implementation of the Money Laundering and Financing of Terrorism (Prevention) Act (Wwft) and the Sanctions Act (Sw). The various supervisory bodies (De Nederlandsche Bank, the Netherlands Authority for the Financial Markets, the Financial Supervision Office, and the Wwft Supervision Office) have developed more specific guidelines for the entities under their supervision. You will find the relevant guidelines for each reporting group on this page.
