Art market and high-value dealers at risk

The European Commission’s supra-national risk assessment published on 26 June 2017 identifies the art market and dealers in high-value goods  as being sectors at risk due to what the report describes as their “inherent risk exposure and weak level of controls.”  It recommends member states consider including auction houses, art and antiques dealers and specific traders in high-value goods in their lists of AML/CTF regulatred entities [2]
