Money laundering and the financing of terrorism are global problems
that can threaten the security and stability of financial institutions and systems, undermine economic prosperity and weaken governance systems.
The goAML application is a UNODC strategic response to financial crime including money laundering and terrorist financing. The goAML application has been developed by the Enterprise Application Center Vienna (EAC-VN) of UNODC in partnership with the UNODC Global Programme Against Money Laundering. It is an integrated database and intelligent analysis system intended for use by Financial Intelligence Units worldwide.
Financial Intelligence Units play a leading role in any anti-money laundering regime as they are generally responsible for receiving, processing and analyzing reports made by financial institutions or other entities according to the requirements of domestic anti-money laundering laws and regulations. Such reports and other information gathered by FIU's often provide the basis for investigations into money laundering, terrorist financing and other serious offences.
