On 4th November, FATF published its latest Business Bulletin newsletter which refers to a public statement on stablecoins and other emerging assets, draft guidance on digital ID and new work on combating the laundering of the proceeds of wildlife crime.  It refers to mutual evaluations of Russia and Turkey, considered at the October Plenary, and follow-up assessments on Norway and Spain.  Follow-up reports on Denmark, Ireland and Singapore were also considered at the Plenary, with some re-rating on some FATF Recommendations.  The Plenary also considered Brazil’s progress since its 2010 evaluation and concerns were expressed about a recent court decision regarding the use of financial intelligence.  It also provides links to recent reports from FATF-style regional bodies – APG and Moneyval.


This blog is primarily for my own use, to keep informed and up to date. However, if you would like to say thank you (and perhaps help me get a new, better laptop when I am away…) you can “buy me a coffee” at https://www.buymeacoffee.com/KoIvM842y
