High-risk and non-cooperative jurisdictions

The FIU identifies jurisdictions with weak measures to combat money laundering and terrorist financing (AML/CFT) in two FIU public documents that are issued three times a year. The FIUís process to publicly list countries with weak AML/CFT regimes has proved effective. As of February 2016, the FIU has reviewed over 80 countries and publicly identified 59 of them. Of these 59, 46 have since made the necessary reforms to address their AML/CFT weaknesses and have been removed from the process (see also, an overview of the jurisdictions currently identified in this process). 

To achieve global implementation of the FIU Recommendations, the FIU relies on a strong global network of FIU-Style Regional Bodies (FSRBs), in addition to its own 37 members.  The nine FSRBs have an essential role in promoting the effective implementation of the FIU Recommendations by their membership and in providing expertise and input in FIU policy-making.  Over 190 jurisdictions around the world have commited to the FIU Recommendations through the global network of FSRBs and FIU memberships.
