Anti-Money Laundering (AML)

Compliance – Peace of Mind

The objective of the Federal Law on Prevention and Identification of Operations with Resources of Illicit Origin (LFPIORPI – Ley Federal de Prevención e Identificación de Operaciones con Recursos de Procedencia Ilícita), is to protect the financial system and the national economy, establishing measures and procedures to prevent and detect acts or operations that involve resources of illicit origin. This Law was created to regulate Vulnerable Activities and to comply with FATF Recommendation 28, which states that countries must have regulatory and supervisory measures for DNFBPs (Designated Non-Financial Businesses and Professions). Mexico complies with this Recommendation and has published the LFPIORPI with the objective of establishing regulation to prevent, detect, combat, and denounce money laundering.
