On 11 September, an article from Comsure looked at the Sixth Money Laundering Directive (6AMLD), saying that it will close certain loopholes in Member States’ domestic legislation by harmonising the definition of money laundering across the EU.  The Directive places a particular focus on ‘predicate offences’ and expands the list of money laundering predicate offences to reflect the modern threat landscape better.  6AMLD will/should be transposed into law across all Member States by 3 December – and must be implemented in those territories by 3 June 2021.  It defines and standardises 22 predicate offences for money laundering, now includes cybercrime and environmental crime, and also harmonises the definition of other predicate offences.
