CEIFAC trains members of the European Union's prosecuting and judicial authorities in financial investigations and criminal financial analysis in support of such investigations.


The training course is intended for practicing auditors-trainers (30 per session) who are able to disseminate knowledge and know-how within their own departments, from the European Union. Its specificity lies in the concrete use of the prior experience of practitioners, auditors and speakers as a vector for the transfer of shared knowledge.


The training aims to equip auditors with the ability to conduct due diligence on FIs in a context of police cooperation at the European level, as defined by the FATF (Financial Action Task Force) and the European Union. It provides auditors with the methodology to implement Criminal Financial Analysis in financial investigations. The joint work of representatives of all the links in the law enforcement chain - police officers, customs officers, prosecutors and judges from all over the EU and the candidate countries - creates links and enables the establishment of an informal network of prosecuting and judicial authorities, thus facilitating judicial and police cooperation.


The training is organized in two stages:

  • E-learning (280h): a refresher course prior to the face-to-face training allows the auditors to acquire the same basic knowledge of European legislation in the fight against organised crime and financial fraud. Modules also cover accounting and the legal and financial environment of companies as well as information and communication techniques.
  • Face-to-face training (77 hours) enables financial investigations to be carried out on the basis of concrete cases drawn from real-life experience. The groups are set up in such a way as to bring together representatives of the prosecuting authorities (police, gendarmerie, customs) and justice authorities (prosecutors, judges) from all EU Member States.


The face-to-face training takes place in STRASBOURG during two annual sessions, in April and October, each lasting 12 days.

The training is reserved for practitioners working in the prosecution and justice services of the EU Member States.
