New convention aimed at combating money laundering and the financing of terrorism entered into force
Strasbourg, 1 May 2008

The Council of Europe Convention on laundering, search, seizure and confiscation of the proceeds from crime and on the financing of terrorism entered into force on 1 May 2008.

This is the first legally binding international treaty which covers in a comprehensive manner both the prevention and the control of money laundering and the financing of terrorism. This convention builds upon the 1990 Strasbourg Convention (CETS 141) and introduces new practical measures, drawn upon the experience of the evaluations conducted by MONEYVAL, the Council of Europe monitoring body on money laundering and terrorist financing.

A Conference of Parties will be established by May 2009 to monitor the implementation of the Convention.
