Short Update: AML & Compliance Seminar ONLINE 22.11.21 (ENGLISH) 10 - 10:30 AM

Antwerp Diamond Seminar
22 Nov 2021

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 22 November 2021 from 10 AM to 10:30 AM via Zoom. Once you register for this seminar, you will automatically receive a confirmation e-mail that includes the link and the details for the webinar. 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 webinar until the end will receive a certificate of participation. The certificates will be sent to you digitally after the webinar, as we are currently still working with a reduced staff we kindly ask for your patience. The certificate will be sent over the course of the next week. If you are a director of or represent more than one company, kindly let us know for which company/companies (make sure you spell the names correctly!) via reply, so we can create additional certificates. We do not make duplicates of the certificate!

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.

It is mandatory to follow an anti-money laundering seminar to be informed on your duties under the AML legislation.
