The next round of EU Supra National Risk Assessment (SNRA), in the context of the Anti-Money Laundering Directive, starts with a first meeting with the philanthropic sector on the 30th November, please share your views on risks related to the sector.

According to the 4th EU Money Laundering Directive, the European Commission has to undertake a Supranational Risk Assessment (SNRA) on money laundering, and terrorism financing risks. This applies to the philanthropic sector, with the first SNRA being published last year. The second round will have its first stakeholder engagement meeting on the 30th November in Brussels.

The invitation was sent to a small, select group of non-profit organisations, and the EFC will, as part of the philanthropic infrastructure, make proposals to improve the outreach of the second meeting, scheduled for January 2019. With the end of the November meeting in sight, the European Commission is seeking to better understand the perception of risks in each sector, and has in this context shared a questionnaire to collate data from the sector.

The EFC and DAFNE will prepare a joint input based on existing comparative data and national risk assessments done on the philanthropic sector. In this context, we encourage individual EFC and DAFNE members to provide their views on risk perception on their national sectors or organisations.

A group of civil society and philanthropic organisations will also be meeting on the 29th November to prepare for the European Commission meeting.

Questionnaire SNRA AMLD – please return to Hanna Surmatz by the 28th November.
