Typologies research topics

The EAG conducts research on the ML/TF typologies which are common in the Eurasian region (the most common schemes).

Typologies research makes it possible to identify the high-risk areas and sectors and devise effective risk management methods.

The highest-priority subjects for research into typologies in the region are determined by the participants of the EAG Plenary meetings.

The Eurasian group disseminates the results of typologies research and best practices to law enforcement and supervisory bodies as well as private sector institutions.

Based on its findings, the EAG conducts seminars on typologies:

  • November 2010: Moscow (Russia), jointly with Moneyval
  • October 2009: Moscow (Russia)
  • October 2007: Almaty (Kazakhstan)
