The seminar is scheduled for 31st October this year and will take place in Copenhagen. The training is in person only and the DGA said there is no option to attend remotely.

This is the second edition of this training course because the DGA acknowledges a similar course last year was heavily oversubscribed, and the regulator wants to educate as many gambling industry stakeholders as possible.

The training course is aimed at gambling stakeholders and companies that are required to report on business operations and activities under the Anti-Money Laundering Act set out in Danish legislation.

Details of the AML Course

The training course is planned to be a day in duration and is a collaboration of several regulatory bodies in Denmark, including the Danish Business Authority, the Danish Security and Intelligence Service, the Danish Financial Intelligence Unit, the Danish Gambling Authority, the Danish Bar and Law Society, the Danish Tax Agency, the National Special Crime Unit, and the Danish Financial Supervisory Authority.

In details of the training the Spillemyndigheden says the course will be split into 4 case studies that examine the regulatory guidelines relating to the prevention of money laundering and financing of terrorism in the region.

The purpose of the event is to strengthen the level of knowledge and exchange of experience among employees in and across public authorities and private companies.
