On 25 January, MONEYVAL published a new guide which aims to help authorities conduct effective AML/CFT supervision in times of crisis or difficult external factors. It is based on information collected from supervisors across MONEYVAL jurisdictions and other international actors on the measures they have taken to overcome the difficulties caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, including operational limitations, notably the physical movement restrictions impeding the execution of on-site visits, limited human resources and technical complications. MONEYVAL member States and territories will be invited to provide feed-back on the use of its findings in one year.
