Spelinspektionen to Launch New AML Reporting System
Spelinspektionen, the Swedish gambling regulator, is going to launch a new system for licensed operators to report suspected money laundering and terrorist financing. Scheduled to launch on January 13, 2020, the goAML platform will increase the quality of reports filed with the police.
The goAML platform will open for registration on December 9 and licensees can sign up ahead of the January launch date, after which they will be able to begin filing reports. Registration is subject to approval from the police, but the regulator said that the process should not take longer than two days.
Confirmation of the launch comes as Spelinspektionen continues to clamp down on unlicensed and unregulated gambling activities in the country, following the opening of its regulated market earlier this year.
