General information

FATF-style regional bodies (FSRBs) conduct mutual evaluations in which the national AML/CFT regimes of the member states are assessed for conformity to international standards.

Mutuality means that representatives of all the member states of the FSRB evaluate the other member states one-by-one according to the evaluation schedule.

The International Monetary Fund also conducts these evaluations, as do the World Bank and the FATF.

The system of mutual evaluations is based on the FATF special methodology, which was approved in 2004 and then changed and expanded in 2009.

The methodology reproduces the main principles specified in the FATF 40 9 Recommendations and takes into account the generalized international experience in the sphere of AML/TF.

The Eurasian group on combating money laundering and financing of terrorism acknowledges the results of the mutual evaluations conducted by the FATF, other FSRBs, the IMF and the World Bank, and takes them into account within the framework of its own evaluations.
