The Art Market and AML Regulations: Dealer Survey
Welcome to the Center for Art Law Anti-Money Laundering Survey for art dealers and galleries (the "Survey"). We are developing a comparative guide to provide insights for members of the art trade and their council on the current state of implementation of the recent AML regulations. Members of the art trade operating in the United States, the United Kingdom and the European Union are invited to answer the following questions. (Approx. completion time = 5 mins)

The Center will publish its research findings in the Fall of 2021.*

If you would like to receive the results of the Survey or to be invited to related AML training opportunities, please subscribe to the Center's mailing list at
