In the announcement, Binance noted that it aims to use ACSS “training materials, comprehensive databases and deep networks” to enhance the skills and expertise of its compliance team.
On top of that, Binance claims that its team will attend various training sessions, which will help Binance’s sanctions team to get familiar with the latest "OFAC guidelines."
ACSS Executive Director Saskia Rietbroek commented on the matter, stating that the association is proud to be chosen by Binance and is looking forward to providing Binance’s team with the “highest quality of training.”
ACSS, as an organization specializing in providing sanctions training for multinational corporations and financial institutions, will ensure the highest quality of training to the team at Binance in this dynamic sector and help advance compliance in the crypto industry.
Binance claims that it has been actively working on “regulatory compliance” for the past two years. The company claims that in 2022, its compliance team grew from 500 to 750 people.
When talking about the ACSS, Binance’s Global Head of Sanctions, Chagri Poyraz, noted:
By working closely with the ACSS, we will take our sanctions compliance standards to a level that is recognized by a reputable industry association and provide upskilling opportunities for our compliance team. At the end of the day, we want to continue setting the industry standard for security and compliance alongside other industry players.
