Article publication date: 1 July 2004



Reviews the policy of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) and its remit since it was set up in 1989. Outlines the measures involved in the FATF’s work in developing legal standards against money laundering and terrorist financing: monitoring country compliance by a self‐assessment process and a system of mutual evaluation, a system of effective sanctions, and support for technical assistance. Mentions the FATF’s cooperation with the World Bank and International Monetary Fund to develop a common methodology for assessing jurisdictions’ measures against money laundering and terrorist financing, and its list of Non‐Cooperative Countries or Territories (NCCT), which has successfully triggered improvements in anti‐money laundering legislation.
