On July 20 2017, the Chamber adopted the preliminary draft law (new AML Act) for the implementation of the 4th Anti-Money Laundering Directive. The current anti-money laundering scheme will be completely replaced and thus rewritten.

In view of this new AML Act, Stibbe is attending a seminar that focuses on the key elements and the impact of this new Act. Stibbe partner Ivan Peeters and junior associates Sarah De Dijn and Carol Evrard are attending the seminar as guest speakers.

Ivan Peeters will present a practical analysis of recent case-laws concerning reporting of suspicion. Sarah De Dijn and Carol Evrard will discuss the practical consequences of the coexistence of the 4th Anti-Money Directive and the GDPR.

 

Date: Thursday, 12 October 2017

Time: 9:00 am - 6:00 pm

Place: Ter Elst, Kattenbroek 1, 2650 Edegem (Antwerp)

General Data Protection Regulation comes into effect

Short Reads - On 25 May 2018, the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect. The GDPR replaces the EU's prior directive governing the processing and transfer of personal data, which was in place since 1995. As a regulation, the GDPR is directly applicable in all 28 EU member states and thus removes the need for national implementing legislation. However, the GDPR allows member states discretion in certain areas, as a result of which national legislation may still be implemented. In the Netherlands, the GDPR Implementation Act came into effect on 25 May 2018.
