Project Overview


Montevideo, Uruguay


beginning 01/04/2015

Law 17,835/2004, incorporated Designated Non-Financial Businesses and Professions (DNFBPs) into the sector of regulated entities, which included the following areas of activity:

  • Casinos;
  • Antique dealers, or dealers in precious metals and stones;
  • Real Estate;
  • Natural or Legal persons engaged in financial activities or who administer corporate entities; 

Law 18,494/2009, amended the previous rule, adding the following sectors:

  • Notaries
  • Auctioneers

This project will ensure that Uruguay’s competent authorities incorporate international best practices, into its system for reporting and analysing suspicious transactions for DNFBPs. As such, proceeds of crime and funds in support of terrorism will be prevented from entering the financial sector or will be detected and reported by these sectors.
