Anti-money laundering practices

Anti-money laundering practices

fedpol publishes a collection of its FIU’s practices, views and interpretation of the law on money laundering and terrorist financing 



When a financial intermediary suspects a case of money laundering, it submits a Suspicious Activity Report (SAR) to the Money Laundering Reporting Office Switzerland MROS at fedpol. Each day, financial intermediaries raise questions about the cases they wish to report. MROS’s responses are presented each year in its annual report or at financial conferences. fedpol has now brought them together in a single publication that provides an overview of MROS’s practices to the present day.
