The regulations in this area are aimed at impeding the financing of terrorist organisations and money laundering. They define potentially suspicious financial transactions, specify entities obliged to assess transactions and stipulate procedures to be followed if a suspicious transaction is detected. The regulations in this area apply to virtually all entities operating in the financial market and also to some persons operating outside the market. The regulations on the implementation of international sanctions impose obligations on everybody.
