The Third Money Laundering Directive introduces not only a risk-based approach to the fight against dirty money but includes also the financing of terrorism within its scope. The legal basis for such inclusion is Art 95 EC and Art 47 (2) EC and the establishment of the internal market. This contribution aims to explore the implications of EC risk assessment in the area of the EU’s anti money laundering and terrorism financing regulation as justification for harmonization.
