Key Features - International Money-Laundering Information Network (IMoLIN)

  • The Anti-Money-Laundering International Database (AMLID) , a compendium of analyses of anti-money-laundering laws and regulations, including two general classes of money-laundering control measures (domestic laws and international cooperation) as well as information about national contacts and authorities. AMLID is a secure, multi-lingual database and is an important reference tool for law enforcement officers involved in cross-jurisdictional work.  The AMLID questionnaire was updated to reflect new money-laundering trends and standards, and takes into account provisions related to terrorist financing and other current standards, such as the revised FATF 40 + 9 Recommendations.  In addition, the revised AMLID questionnaire now includes a Conventions Framework section.  This new section gives an overview of the status of a country or territory to the international conventions applicable to anti-money-laundering/countering the financing of terrorism (AML/CFT) as well as the status of a country or territory to bi-lateral/multi-lateral treaties or agreements on mutual legal assistance in criminal matters and extradition.  In April 2005, the Law Enforcement, Organized Crime and Anti-Money Laundering Unit (LEOCMLU), initiated the second round of analysis utilizing the recently revised questionnaire and on 27 February 2006, UNODC launched the AMLID 2nd Round of Legal Analysis;
  • the reference section that contains details of the UN's latest research, abstracts of the best new research from governments and international organizations and a bibliography;
  • a click-on map that takes users to regional lists of national legislation. Eventually, this section will contain the full text or links to the full text of all national anti-money-laundering/countering the financing of terrorism (AML/CFT) legislation and regulations throughout the world. The database now contains legislation from some 170 jurisdictions and, since January 2005, more than 350 new/amended AML/CFT legislation and regulations were collected to be included in the database;
  • International Norms and Standards: model laws for common law and civil law systems, standards, conventions and legal instruments ;
