Constant efforts to combat fraud and assaults on bank staff

The banking industry is permanently mobilised in the fight against money laundering and terrorist financing.

 

Progress was made in several areas in 2012 :


- in June, French banks responded to the European Commission's consultation ahead of the revision to the Third Anti-Money Laundering Directive;

- in early July, the processing of personal data by French banks in respect of anti-money laundering rules complied with the amended single AU-003 authorisation of the CNIL (French data protection agency);

- under the decree dated 3 October, French banks comply with enhanced due diligence requirements in situations involving a high risk of money laundering.


The steady decline in the number of armed bank robberies confirms that security procedures are being correctly applied and followed by customers, staff and sites.
