On October 18, Capital Markets and Technology Association (CMTA) published AML Standarts for Digital Assets.

The standards provide guidance for the treatment of digital assets by both businesses and financial intermediaries.

As part of its mission to facilitate the adoption and use of distributed ledger technologies (DLT) in financial markets, the CMTA has developed a set of AML standards. These standards are designed to clarify for both issuers of digital assets and financial intermediaries dealing with such issuers or digital assets measures to be taken in order to comply with the Swiss regulations against money laundering and the financing of terrorism.

The standards aim to create a framework that facilitates the use of DLT – in particular blockchain technology – and the opportunities this brings to financing businesses, while preventing issuers of digital assets from being recipients of illicit funds.

CMTA’s standards have no statutory or regulatory status and are not compulsory. They represent a consensus among significant actors in the financial sector as to how applicable rules and regulations can be complied with and more generally an expression of good practice for the treatment of digital assets.
