The FIU has adopted, to the extent of its competence, organizational measures aimed at safeguarding the principles of efficiency, effectiveness and reasonable duration of the administrative procedures, also with regard to any requests made by subjects interested in the protection of their rights (e.g. for the access to documents, for conducting hearings in the event of gold violations). From another point of view, considering that the restrictions resulting from the current government measures lead to an increase in remote activities, in particular online, it is considered essential that the obliged subjects, within the scope of their organizational autonomy, enhance the IT procedures available to them in order to effectively identify and evaluate the transactions to be reported to the FIU as suspect ".
