Taiwan has completed a large revamp on the anti-money laundering ("AML") related laws in 2018 in response to the Asia/Pacific Group on Money Laundering (APG) review and as an attempt to strengthen the AML mechanism in the country. Pursuant to the newly amended Anti-Money Laundering Act (the "AML Act"), Counter-Terrorism Financing Act (the "CTF Act") and the Regulation Governing the Implementation and Reporting of Anti-Money Laundering and Counter Terrorist Financing of Jewelry Business (the "Regulation"), an enterprise conducting the business of retail and/or wholesale of precious metal, precious stones, or jewelry business including members in the luxury business is required to comply with the AML Act and the CTF Act.
This event, hosted by the ECCT’s Luxury Goods committee, is being held to raise awareness of the challenges facing Taiwan in achieving stronger AML in line with international best practices and standards, and what this means for the international business community. At the event, our guests will engage in a panel discussion on the following topics, among others:
- The enforcement of the AML Act and the CTF Act: A general introduction of the newly amended AML Act, the CTF Act and the Regulation. The achievements and challenges in diverse areas relating to different industries; what these mean for business; and the way forward.
- Future development of the AML Act and the CTF Act in Taiwan: Taiwan’s policy and directions to enhance AML and enforcement to meet international best practices and future developments. An overview of the 2018 APG review and its preliminary result.
