On 12 May, FATF published a follow-up report on Mexico’s AML/CFT regimes. Mexico has been in an enhanced follow-up process since its evaluation in 2018. FATF has now re-rated the country on the following FATF Recommendations:
37 – Mutual legal assistance, from partially compliant to compliant
38 – Mutual legal assistance: freezing and confiscation, from partially compliant to compliant
Mexico is now compliant on 10 of the FATF 40 Recommendations and largely compliant on 22 of them. It remains partially compliant on 7 Recommendations, and non-compliant on 1 Recommendation. It will continue to report back to the FATF on its progress. As is usual with such follow-up reports, effectiveness is not addressed, only technical compliance.
