AMLA is the new EU Anti-Money Laundering Authority. It will become operational in 2026 with headquarters in Frankfurt, Germany.

AMLA was established to strengthen the fight against money laundering and terrorist financing (AML/CFT) across the 27 EU member states.

The AMLA will have the following key functions and responsibilities:

  1. Direct Supervision: The authority will directly supervise a select group of high-risk cross-border financial institutions operating in the EU, such as certain banks, financial companies, and crypto-asset service providers. This direct oversight aims to ensure consistent application of AML/CFT rules across member states.
  2. Coordination and Convergence: The AMLA will facilitate coordination and convergence of supervisory standards and practices among national authorities responsible for AML/CFT supervision. This will help promote a harmonized approach to combating financial crime within the internal market.
  3. Risk Assessment and Analysis: The agency will conduct periodic risk assessments and analysis of money laundering and terrorist financing threats, helping to identify emerging risks and vulnerabilities in the financial system.
  4. Cooperation and Information Exchange: The AMLA will act as a central hub for facilitating cooperation and information exchange among national supervisors, as well as with third-country authorities and international organizations involved in AML/CFT efforts.
  5. Regulatory and Policy Development: The authority will contribute to the development of regulatory and policy initiatives in the AML/CFT domain, providing technical expertise to the European Commission and supporting the implementation of relevant EU legislation.
