On January 1, 2019, a new Gambling Act (2018:1138) with a new licensing system came into force in Sweden, after being approved by the Riksdag (the Swedish parliament). The new Gambling Act opened the market for online gambling operators and is aimed at improving consumer protection, game security and giving transparency and opportunity to all markets. It also established a new regulatory body, Spelinspektionen (Swedish Gambling Authority), replacing the previous gambling authority (Loteriinspektionen).
Under the Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing (Prevention) Act (SFS 2017:630), operators should ensure that employees receive ongoing AML training, to prevent their operations from being used for money laundering or terrorist financing.
The objective of our Sweden AML course is to help you understand the consequences of money laundering and terrorist financing, including details of the principles embedded in Swedish laws and regulations to combat money laundering. By working through realistic business case scenarios, you will be able to apply systems and controls designed to manage the risks related to these activities.
“We have partnered with VIXIO GamblingCompliance to provide eLearning as part of our wider internal training programme to maintain our high AML standards. This allows us to reinforce our culture of compliance and not only meet, but exceed AML obligations. The courses are graded so the level of training can be provided on a risk basis, depending on the role.”
