French regulator ANJ reviews anti-money laundering plans of operators
French regulator ANJ reviewed operators' anti-money laundering plans for 2023 and found "significant progress" had been made.
French gambling regulator l'Autorité Nationale des Jeux (ANJ) has said that licensed operators in France have made "significant progress" in their anti-money laundering efforts since 2022, but that some still require improvement.
ANJ reviewed action plans created by operators for 2023 in relation to the fight against fraud, money laundering and terrorist financing. While most of the plans were approved, one was rejected outright belonging to Pari-Mutuel Urbain (PMU), which was cited for a lack of human resources, inadequate point-of-sales checks and updated risk analysis, and incomplete measures regarding large international bettors. PMU must file a new action plan within a month.
