Dutch National Risk Assessment on Money Laundering 2019

Money laundering via crypto currencies, trade based structures, underground banking and offshore companies are among the greatest money laundering risks in the Netherlands. These are main results from the National Risk Assessment (NRA) on Money Laundering 2019 carried out by the WODC.

The NRA builds on the research methods that were applied in the first NRA from 2017. The risk assessment was established by comparing expert assessments of the possible impact of money laundering methods and the "resilience" of the policy instruments. In doing so, it was examined to what extent the policy instruments are capable of preventing or combating the risks of money laundering.

The research shows that when money laundering methods take place anonymously, at an international level and / or in an unregulated environment (the so-called AIU principle), the resilience of the available policy instruments decreases.
