There are currently 36 members of the FATF; 34 jurisdictions and 2 regional organisations (the Gulf Cooperation Council and the European Commission). These 36 Members are at the core of global efforts to combat money laundering and terrorist financing. There are also 31 international and regional organisations which are Associate Members or Observers of the FATF and participate in its work.
Although the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) is a full Member of the FATF, the individual Member countries of the GCC (of Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates) are not. As an FATF Member, the GCC is committed to implementing the anti-money laundering (AML) and counter-terrorist financing (CFT) measures agreed to by the FATF Members - in particular, the FATF Recommendations.
To monitor and assess the progress of its Members in implementing FATF standards, the FATF conducts a mutual evaluation exercise. As the GCC member countries are not Members of the FATF themselves, and their mutual evaluations are conducted jointly with the regional AML/CFT body for the Middle East and North Africa (MENAFATF).
The Kingdom of the Netherlands (which comprises the Netherlands, Aruba, Curaçao and Saint Maarten) is a member of the FATF. Thus the Netherlands, Aruba, Curaçao and Saint Maarten are together a Member of the FATF.
The Channel Islands (Jersey and Guernsey) and the Isle of Man are not FATF Members. They are Crown Dependencies of the United Kingdom (which is an FATF Member) and members of the Group of International Finance Centre Supervisors (GIFCS), a body that is an observer to the FATF. The GIFCS conducts evaluations of its Members’ anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist financing systems.
Gibraltar is not a Member of the FATF. However, Gibraltar is a member of the Group of International Finance Centre Supervisors (GIFCS), which is an FATF Observer.
