An OSCE-supported two-day training seminar for employees of Kazakhstan’s Central Bank on the application of a risk-based approach to anti-money laundering and combating the financing of terrorism (AML/CFT) supervision of financial organizations concluded on 1 November 2018 in Almaty, Kazakhstan.
Experts from Guernsey and Lichtenstein led the event and familiarized some 20 participants from the National Bank of Kazakhstan with AML/CFT supervision in compliance with international standards.
Participants learned the key characteristics of risk-based AML/CFT supervision, ways of identifying potential risks and taking preventive measures for mitigating them.
The training seminar also involved a discussion on the current practice of implementing AML/CFT supervision by the National Bank of Kazakhstan, including aspects related to risk monitoring and follow-up actions.
The event was organized by the OSCE Programme Office in Astana in partnership with the National Bank of Kazakhstan.
It is part of the Programme Office’s multi-year efforts to promote good governance and combat money laundering and terrorism financing.
