INTERNATIONAL STANDARDS ON COMBATING MONEY LAUNDERING AND THE FINANCING OF TERRORISM & PROLIFERATION - The FATF Recommendations
The Financial Action Task Force (FATF) is an inter-governmental body established in 1989 by the
Ministers of its Member jurisdictions. The mandate of the FATF is to set standards and to promote
effective implementation of legal, regulatory and operational measures for combating money
laundering, terrorist financing and the financing of proliferation, and other related threats to the
integrity of the international financial system. In collaboration with other international
stakeholders, the FATF also works to identify national-level vulnerabilities with the aim of
protecting the international financial system from misuse.
