Methodology and Materials

All Anti-Money Laundering and Combating the Financing of Terrorism assessments are conducted with reference to the 40+9 Recommendations of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF). In order to ensure the consistency and fairness of assessments, all assessor bodies (FATF, FATF-Style Regional Bodies, International Monetary Fund, World Bank) have prepared a methodology for all assessments. This is complemented by a Handbook for assessors and assessed countries, which lays out how assessments are conducted and how the Methodology shall be used.
