As an FIU is an investigative unit set up by each country to collect suspicious activity reports about illegal financial activity, such as money laundering and terrorism.

This is in line with their mandate under the AMLA, as amended by Republic Acts 9194, 10167, and 10365, as well as Republic Act 10168, dubbed the “Terrorism Financing Prevention and Suppression Act of 2012.”
The Certificate of Registration from the AMLC verifies that a firm has properly completed the AMLC registration process for the purpose of submitting reports as required by law, and that the company has done so. As a result, Mount Fuji Lending, Inc. joins the worldwide effort to combat money laundering and financing of terrorism.
