National Risk Assessment for Ireland – Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing
On 7 October 2016 the Department Finance and the Department of Justice and Equality published Ireland’s first Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing (ML/TF) National Risk Assessment (NRA).
The NRA is an assessment of the ML/TF threats in Ireland and the vulnerabilities of certain sectors to being used for ML/TF as a result of the products and/or services they offer, their customer base, the countries in which they operate and the delivery/distribution channels they utilise. As such, the NRA is an important source for financial institutions and other designated persons to support and inform their own ML/TF risk assessments.
