On 26 July 2018, the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) published a report that looks at the techniques and tools used by professional money launderers (PMLs), to help countries identify and dismantle them. The report identifies the key characteristics of the individual PML, the professional money laundering organisation and the professional money laundering network of associates and contacts that work together to facilitate money laundering. A non-public version of the report is available to FATF members, and includes practical recommendations for the detection, and prevention of professional money laundering.
