As part of the modernisation of its computer system and in a continuous effort to improve Monaco’s anti-money laundering policy, the Information and Control Service of Financial Circuits (SICCFIN) has been working for many months, with the support of the Government, on a project to strengthen the security of the IT system.
One of the strengths of this project is the installation on the SICCFIN servers of the “goAML” operational and strategic analysis support software developed and developed by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Drug Control, (UNODC), specifically designed for Financial Intelligence Units (FIUs) such as SICCFIN.
The main objective of this software is to improve the capacity of countries to implement their money-laundering and terrorist financing policies. The software meets the requirements of a FIU, regardless of its size, with an “all in one” solution. It has been successfully deployed in several countries and enjoys international recognition.
Three agents from Monaco, Karine Imbert, Eric Bergesi and Yann Raconnat le Goff, travelled to Liechtenstein at the invitation of the Director of the national FIU (EFFI), Daniel Thelesklaf, to study the operation of the computer tool, as Liechtenstein had implemented it several months ago. In addition to the technical side of the visit, the occasion also strengthened the links between the staff of EFFI and SICCFIN.
France has said that night clubs will be able to reopen in July, leaving club owners delighted but also concerned about what kind of rules will need to be implemented.
The YCM will host June's Festival of the Sea in honour of the patron saint of fishermen, Saint Peter, however the event will be scaled back this year due to health restrictions.
A new public use facility called A Fabrica has been inaugurated in the heart of Princess Antoinette Park, a space made possible by the generosity of two local donors.
Masks will no longer be mandatory in Monaco from Saturday, with the exception of a few tourist hotspots like Casino Square.
ACREW, a provider of professional development to superyacht captains and crew, has announced the opening of registrations for ACREW Monaco at La Rascasse during the Monaco Yacht Show. This year the entire venue and terraces will be dedicated to this networking and professional development event.
Having listened to captains and crew about the subjects that most concern them, ACREW says its team has designed “an exciting programme featuring one masterclass each day and several hands-on workshops”.
ACREW is inviting superyacht captains and crew to register for attendance. To celebrate the launch of its new app – “to track your travels and record nautical miles”– Bunker Buoy, the official ACREW Monaco Registrations Sponsor, will award prizes to crew who download their application.
The event has already generated significant interest and crew are advised to register interest for the masterclasses and workshops as places are limited.
ACREW also confirms that Warsash Superyacht Academy and MYBA are returning as supporting partners of ACREW Monaco. This year they will be joined by the Professional Yacht Association (PYA) who will run their annual PYA seminars from ACREW Monaco at La Rascasse.
