Luxembourg - Filing of 2022 questionnaire on financial crime with the CSSF
As previously announced the CSSF confirmed that the annual online questionnaire for the year 2022, collecting standardised key information concerning money laundering and terrorism financing risks to which the professionals under supervision are exposed, and which forms part of the AML/CFT risk-based approach put in place by the CSSF, will be launched on 15 February 2023.
The 2022 questionnaire, which remains mainly unchanged compared to the previous year, must be initiated and submitted via the CSSF eDesk portal by:
- The compliance officer in charge of the control of compliance with the professional obligations (“responsable du controle du respect des obligations professionnelles”, RR); or
- The person responsible for compliance with the professional obligations (“responsable du respect des obligations professionnelles”, RC).
It is possible for the RR or RC to assign, within the CSSF eDesk portal, the completion of the questionnaire to another employee of the entity or to a third-party, however the ultimate responsibility remains with the RR or RC. An eDesk account, which requires a LuxTrust authentification, is required.
Answers to the questions will have to be submitted through the CSSF eDesk portal by 31 March 2023 at the latest.
