Since the assessment of The Bahamas' measures against money laundering and terrorist financing, the country has taken significant actions to strengthen its framework to fight money laundering and the financing of terrorism and proliferation.

The Bahamas, a member of FATF Associate member the Caribbean Financial Action Task Force (CFATF), has been under enhanced monitoring since the adoption of its Mutual Evaluation Report. In line with the CFATF Procedures for the Fourth Round of Mutual AML/CFT Evaluations, the country has reported back to the CFATF on the actions it has taken since its mutual evaluation and its 3rd Enhanced Follow-up Report.

Consequently, to reflect the progress of The Bahamas, the CFATF has re-rated the country in relation to Recommendations 6, 7, 24 and 33 from Partially Compliant to Largely Compliant and Recommendations 19, 22, 26, 27 and 28 from Partially Compliant to Compliant.

Today, The Bahamas is Compliant with 18 Recommendations and Largely Compliant on 20 of them – combined they represent 38 out of the 40 FATF Recommendations.
