Danish regulator strengthens sports integrity remit with UULS membership

Spillemyndigheden to host AML training alongside Denmark security authorities

Spillemyndigheden, Denmark’s gambling regulator, will join several national security branches in hosting an extensive case-based AML training.

Taking place on 31 October in the capital city of Copenhagen, the training will welcome relevant shareholders who have a duty of reporting under the Danish AML Act.

Together with Spillenmyndigheden, other attendee organisations  include the Danish Business Authority, the Danish Security and Intelligence Service, Denmark’s Financial Intelligence Unit, the Danish Bar and Law Society, the Danish Tax Agency, the National Special Crime Unit, as well as the Danish Financial Supervisory Authority.

The training will focus on the responsibilities of persons and businesses subject to AML reporting under the country’s regulatory framework.

Interested parties can submit an application to attend until 15 September, with Spillemyndigheden issuing a reminder that there are limited spots at the event, as online participation will not be possible.

The regulator added: “The event is a mix of plenary training and group dialogues, and there will be ample opportunity for knowledge sharing and questions.

“The cases are so broad that there will be angles from all the above organisers and the different cases have been created with input from the industries.”
