FATF Updates List of Countries with AML/CFT Deficiencies
The Financial Action Task Force [FATF] has published its updated list of jurisdictions with "strategic" AML/CFT Deficiencies, whilst also warning its members, again, about the special dangers posed by Iran and North Korea [DPRK].
It is highly recommended that all review this material, especially if clients have substantial trade or financial commerce with these nations, for you can see exactly where they have complied with FATF requests, and where they are still deficient, according to FATF guidelines.
Please govern yourself accordingly, with respect to your assessment of country risk.
The countries with outstanding AML/CFT Deficiencies, as reported by FATF.
You are referred to the document* for specific details:
- ANTIGUA & BARBUDA
- SAO TOME AND PRINCIPE
- SRI LANKA
- TRINIDAD & TOBAGO
Please note that both Qatar and Azerbaijan have been removed from the FATF list of monitored nations, due to the fact that these two countries have addressed previously listed deficiencies.
