Commission adopts stronger rules to fight terrorism financing


Commissioners Dimitris Avramopoulos, Věra Jourová and Julian King

Today, the European Commission has adopted a package of measures to strengthen the EU's capacity to fight the financing of terrorism and organised crime, delivering on the commitments made in the Action Plan against terrorist financing from February 2016. The proposals will complete and reinforce the EU's legal framework in the areas of money laundering, illicit cash flows and the freezing and confiscation of assets.

What actions have been undertaken so far and which are still planned under the security union's action plan to combat terrorist financing can be found in this factsheet.

The European Commission is currently still accepting feedback from the private sector in forms of a survey, for further information please get in touch.
