Since the publication of the mutual evaluation report, Greece has provided the FATF Plenary with progress reports on a regular basis. At the February 2010 Plenary meeting, Greece requested the publication of this progress report.

During the assessment of its measures to combat money laundering and terrorist financing, Greece was rated partially compliant (PC) or non-compliant (NC) on 13 (out of 16) key and core Recommendations (see below). Due to these deficiencies, Greece was made subject to expedited follow-up proceedings starting in October 2007, as well as enhanced follow-up.
