This is a SHORT UPDATE about NEW developments in AML legislation, targeted to advanced participants that have already attended a complete AML Seminar.

In Belgium, diamond traders are subject to the anti-money laundering legislation. This means that they need to fulfill certain obligations and formalities, to trade in compliance with the anti-money laundering legislation.

AWDC organizes seminars to inform diamond traders about this legislation and what they need to do to comply with this legal framework. 

This seminar will be held ONLINE on Monday 8 March 2021 from 10A to 10:30 AM through the Zoom platform. Once you register for this seminar, you will automatically receive a confirmation e-mail which includes the link and the right details for the webinar. On the day of the seminar, you will be able to join the seminar by clicking on the hyperlink sent to you in the e-mail.

Currently, no distinction is made between basic and advanced seminars. This seminar will be held in English

Your attendance and participation during this ONLINE AML seminar will be monitored. Only those who actively follow the AML seminar until the end will receive a certificate of participation. The certificates will be available to be picked up from AWDC’s front desk after the seminar. More information on this will be provided during the seminar.

Please note that all companies, and in any case at least one director of all diamond trading companies, are required to attend such a seminar and to provide proof of such attendance to the Federal Public Service of Economy. The deadline for submission of this proof is in December. If you have not yet participated to an AML seminar, please sign up to attend this one. 

Participation is free of charge. We advise you to keep your participation certificate in your administration, as proof of attendance in case you would get a spot check by the FPS Economy.
