On 23 December, FATF published the 2nd follow-up report produced by FATF-style regional body MENAFATF following the 2018 evaluation of the country’s AML/CFT systems.  Its rating for 31 FATF Recommendations for technical compliance have been rerated.  As with other such updates, actual effectiveness of the systems has not been re-assessed.  Mauritania remains in the Enhanced Follow-Up process and will submit its 3rd Enhanced Follow-Up report to MENAFATF in November 2021.
