Article 6 — Additional functions of a central contact point
- In addition to the functions specified in Articles 4 and 5, host Member States may require central contact points to perform, on behalf of the appointing electronic money issuer or payment services provider, one or more of the following functions:
- file reports pursuant to Article 33(1) of Directive (EU) 2015/849 as transposed in national law of the host Member State;
- respond to any request of the FIU related to the activity of establishments specified in Article 45(9) of Directive (EU) 2015/849, and providing relevant information related to such establishments to the FIU;
- scrutinise transactions to identify suspicious transactions where appropriate, in light of the size and complexity of the electronic money issuer's or payment services provider's operations in the host Member State.
- Host Member States may require central contact points to perform one or more of the additional functions specified in paragraph 1 where those additional functions are commensurate to the overall level of money laundering and terrorist financing risk associated with the operation of those payment service providers and electronic money issuers that have establishments in their territory in forms other than a branch.
- Host Member States shall base their assessment of the level of money laundering or terrorist financing risk associated with the operation of such establishments on the findings of risk assessments carried out in accordance with Article 6(1) and Article 7(1) of Directive (EU) 2015/849, Article 3(2) of this Regulation where applicable, and other credible and reliable sources available to them.
