FinCEN advisory on FATF list of AML/CFT-deficient countries
FinCEN has issued Advisory FIN-2020-A004 on the Financial Action Task Force-identified jurisdictions with AML/CFT deficiencies, which the FATF re-issued on June 30.
FinCEN advises that financial institutions should consider the FATF’s statements when reviewing their obligations and risk-based policies, procedures, and practices with respect to the jurisdictions identified for increased monitoring (Albania, The Bahamas, Barbados, Botswana, Burma (Myanmar), Cambodia, Ghana, Iceland, Jamaica, Mauritius, Mongolia, Nicaragua, Pakistan, Panama, Syria, Uganda, Yemen, and Zimbabwe).
The FATF made the initial determination that Iceland and Mongolia have substantially completed their action plans, and issued statements noting their progress. Iceland and Mongolia will remain identified as “Jurisdictions under Increased Monitoring” until the FATF can conduct on-site visits to verify that each country has begun implementing its reforms.
