 Directive 2001/97/EC

I. Description

The European Parliament has expressed concerns that the activities of currency exchange offices (‘bureaux de change’) and money transmitters (money remittance offices) are vulnerable to money laundering. These activities should already fall within the scope of the Directive. In order to dispel any doubt in this matter the Directive should clearly confirm that these activities are covered.
