Download Free AML Policy Template for Virtual Asset Service Providers

With the ever-increasing popularity of virtual assets and the element of anonymity, the virtual assets segment is prone to a high risk of being exploited by money launderers. Accordingly, the Virtual Asset Service Providers (VASP) are extremely vulnerable to money laundering activities and terrorism financing. The UAE Government has amended the original Federal Decree Law No. (20) of 2018 On Anti-Money Laundering and Combating the Financing of Terrorism and Financing of Illegal Organizations, vide Federal Decree-Law No. (26) of 2021, to make the AML/CFT regulations applicable to the VASPs as well.
To mitigate AML/CFT risks, VASPs in the UAE need adequate procedures and controls to safeguard their business from money laundering and terrorist financing risks. VASP should have comprehensive AML/CFT policies in place, commensurate to the nature and size of its business, to assist them in the identification of the risk, assess its impact and deploy the necessary measures to mitigate the risk.
Please note that Article 16.1 (d) of the Federal Decree Law No. (20) of 2018 requires the designated organization to develop internal policies, controls, and procedures to mitigate the identified ML/FT.
AML policies, controls, and procedures must be approved by senior management of the organization and applied harmoniously to all the branches, subsidiaries, and affiliates of the VASP. While documenting the internal policies and procedures, VASP should consider the FATF (Financial Actions Task Force) recommendations and the specific guidelines for Virtual Assets and VASP.

The AML policies, controls, and procedures adopted by the VASP should be relevant and capable enough to manage and mitigate the ML/FT risks to which the VASPs are exposed. These policies should be proportionate to the risks involved.

AML UAE provides a free AML Policy Manual to help you comply with the AML/CFT regulations applicable in the UAE.
