On 5 February 2013, following a broad consultation among all the parties concerned, the European Commission presented a proposal for a fourth directive on the prevention of the use of the financial system for the purpose of money laundering and financing of terrorism. The new directive will completely replace the existing Directive 2005/60/EC (Third Directive) and take into account the Recommendations issued by the FATF in February 2012.

The work was then continued by a group formed within the European Council and by the competent committees of the European Parliament, which made several changes to the proposal.

The Financial Intelligence Unit for Italy (FIU) took part in both the European Council group of experts and the network of Financial Intelligence Units (the EU FIUs Platform), which has carried out further studies and drawn up proposals on relevant aspects.
