Danish Gambling Authority to host third round training anti-money laundering (AML) and financing of terrorism case-based training event

The Danish Gambling Authority, Spillemyndigheden, has announced that it will be hosting a third anti-money laundering (AML) and financing of terrorism case-based training event, following a high volume of interest from prospective participants.  

Organised in collaboration with the Danish Business Authority, the Danish Financial Intelligence Unit, the Danish Security and Intelligence Service, the Danish Bar and Law Society, the National Special Crime Unit, the Danish Supervisory Authority and the Danish Tax Agency, Spillemyndigheden will co-host the event on 31 October.  

Previous events were held in both November 2023 and April 2024. Both had proved popular enough to justify this latest iteration of the training, which follows the exact structure of the first two.  

The in-person-only event is set to take place in Copenhagen and is aimed at any persons or representatives of organisations subject to reporting duty under the AML Act. Training at the event will be a mixture of meetings, sessions and group interactions and is based on four cases of money laundering and terrorist financing. All training will be conducted in Danish.  

The goal of the training, outlined by the Danish Gambling Authority, is to enhance the operational knowledge and exchange of experience between organisations that must adhere to AML law within the nation.  

In other recent regulatory news in Denmark, Spillemyndigheden is set to introduce new licensing rights for game suppliers from the beginning of 2025. Released at the end of May, Denmark’s latest figures indicate a slight downturn in monthly global gaming revenue (GGR) of 6.9% to DKK 595m ($86.4m) for the month of April.
