On 21 January, FATF published the follow-up report on Jamaica following its 2017 mutual evaluation review (MER) undertaken by CFATF. It says that, overall, Jamaica has made noteworthy progress in addressing the technical compliance deficiencies identified in its 2017 Mutual Evaluation Report and has been re-rated on 13 FATF Recommendations –
- Recommendations 12, 21, 33 are re-rated as Compliant;
- Recommendations 2, 6, 10, 11, 14, 17, 18, 19 are re-rated as Largely Compliant;
- Recommendation 8 is re-rated as Partially Compliant; and
- Recommendation 15 is re-rated as Partially Compliant.
Jamaica will remain in enhanced follow-up and will continue to report back to the CFATF on progress to strengthen its implementation of AML/CFT measures.
