Guidelines on risk based supervision

  • Status: Final and translated into the EU official languages

These Guidelines specify the characteristics of a risk-based approach to anti-money laundering and countering the financing of terrorism supervision and  set out what competent authorities should do to ensure that their allocation of supervisory resources is commensurate to the level of money laundering and terrorist financing risk associated with credit and financial institutions in their sector. They build on the ESAs' 'Preliminary report on anti-money laundering and counter financing of terrorism Risk Based Supervision', which were published in October 2013.
