What is FATF?

  • FATF is the Financial Action Task Force, an inter-governmental body established in Paris in 1989 by the Group of 7 (G7).
  • It seeks to combat money laundering, terrorist financing  and other threats to the international financial system.
  • It is both a policy-making and enforcement body.
  • FATF has 2 types of lists:
    • Black List:Countries knowns as Non-Cooperative Countries or Territories (NCCTs) are put in the blacklist. These countries support terror funding and money laundering activities. The FATF revises the blacklist regularly, adding or deleting entries.
    • Grey List: Countries that are considered safe haven for supporting terror funding and money laundering are put in the FATF grey list. This inclusion serves as a warning to the country that it may enter the blacklist.
