MONEYVAL holds the annual typologies meeting

More than 120 delegates representing MONEYVAL members and observers attended the annual MONEYVAL typologies meeting which took place virtually on the 24th of March 2023. Led by Isle of Man, the project analyses various aspects of the potential use of virtual assets (VA) and virtual asset service providers (VASPs) in money laundering or terror financing schemes. Issues related to risk, supervision and suspicious activity reporting are included in the scope of the report.
The topic of VA and VASPs has evolved tremendously in the recent years. A range of new products, services and business models have been developed that have the potential to spur financial innovation and efficiency and improve financial inclusion, but they also create new opportunities for criminals and terrorists to launder their proceeds or finance their illicit activities. 
The meeting was opened by Ms Elżbieta Franków-Jaśkiewicz, MONEYVAL Chair. In the course of the debates, the project team gave a detailed presentation of the content of the draft report and the audience heard from experience of Malta, Gibraltar, Estonia, Romania, Liechtenstein, UNODC and FATF Secretariat.
Following this meeting and using the output of the debates, the project team together with the Secretariat will finalize the typologies report, with a view to its adoption by the MONEYVAL Plenary meeting in May 2023.
