Financial Action Task Force identifies jurisdictions with AML/CFT deficiencies

The Financial Action Task Force (FATF), an intergovernmental body that establishes international standards for anti-money laundering, countering the financing of terrorism, and countering the financing of proliferation of weapons of mass destruction (AML/CFT/CPF), updated its lists of jurisdictions with strategic AML/CFT/CPF deficiencies. Monaco and Venezuela are added to its list of Jurisdictions Under Increased Monitoring and Jamaica and Turkey are removed from the list.

As part of the FATF’s listing and monitoring process to ensure compliance with its international standards, the FATF issued two statements:

  • Jurisdictions Under Increased Monitoring, which publicly identifies jurisdictions with strategic deficiencies in their AML/CFT/CPF regimes that have committed to, or are actively working with, the FATF to address those deficiencies in accordance with an agreed upon timeline; and
  • High-Risk Jurisdictions Subject to a Call for Action, which publicly identifies jurisdictions with significant strategic deficiencies in their AML/CFT/CPF regimes and calls on all FATF members to apply enhanced due diligence and, in the most serious cases, apply countermeasures to protect the international financial system.
