Ireland tends to develop a strong AML legislation, because it is at risk due to narcotics tracking, fraud, tax offenses and money remittance.

The law in Ireland on anti-money laundering (AML) and the countering of the financing of terrorism (CFT) is governed by The Criminal Justice (Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing) Act 2010, as amended by Part 2 of the Criminal Justice Act 2013 (“the Act”).
