On 28 January, FATF published this follow-up report produced by FATF-style regional body MENA-FATF. It reflects progress made in improving its level of compliance with the FATF standards, since a 2018 mutual evaluation and the most recent follow-up report. The follow-up report also assesses the implementation of FATF Recommendations that were modified since the country’s mutual evaluation. FATF Recommendation 2 is re-rated from partially compliant to compliant; Recommendation 11 re-rated from partially compliant to compliant; and Recommendation 26 is re-rated from partially compliant to compliant. Mauritania is now “compliant” with 14 of the forty FATF Recommendations, “largely compliant” with 21 Recommendations and “partially compliant” with 5 Recommendations. The country has no “non-compliant” ratings. Mauritania shall remain in the Enhanced Follow-up process; provided that it submits its next follow-up report to the Plenary to be held in November 2022.
