On 5th September, FATF published a follow-up report to its AML/CFT mutual evaluation report of 2018. To reflect Iceland’s progress, FATF has now re-rated the country on 13 of the 40 Recommendations. FATF also agreed to maintain the rating of “Partially Compliant” for Recommendation 2 (National co-operation and co-ordination) and Recommendation 7 (Targeted financial sanctions related to proliferation); re-rate Recommendation 18 (Internal controls and foreign branches and subsidiaries) to “Largely Compliant”; and maintain Recommendation 21 (Tipping-off and confidentiality) as “Compliant”. Iceland remains “Partially Compliant” or “Non-Compliant” on 12 of the 40 Recommendations, “Compliant” on 14 Recommendations and “Largely Compliant” on 14 Recommendations. Iceland will continue to report back to FATF on its progress.
