Dubai, UAE, 26 September 2012: The Dubai Financial Services Authority (DFSA) celebrated, today, the achievement of sixteen (16) of its employees who recently achieved the Advanced Diploma in Anti-Money Laundering (AML) from the International Compliance Association (UK).
Over the last year, the group of financial services regulators responsible for the supervision of financial services entities in the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC), attended workshops and completed assignments and examinations to achieve this internationally recognised qualification.
Awarded by the International Compliance Association in conjunction with the University of Manchester, this diploma gives individuals up-to-date knowledge of the practice of anti-money laundering activities and the prevention of money laundering.
