FATF Plenary, June 2021

Paris, 21 June 2021

Under the German Presidency of Dr Marcus Pleyer, delegates representing 205 members of the Global Network and observer organisations including the International Monetary Fund, the United Nations and the Egmont Group of Financial Intelligence Units will take part in the virtual meeting of the FATF Plenary.

During five days, they will discuss key issues to strengthen global action against the financial flows that fuel crime and terrorism.

Delegates will discuss the assessments of Japan and South Africa’s measures to combat money laundering and terrorist financing. They will hear the progress made by some jurisdictions identified as presenting a risk to the financial system.

The FATF will finalise key reports, including on money laundering and environmental crime, ethnically and racially motivated terrorist financing and two reports that explore the opportunities that technology can offer to improve anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist financing efforts. The FATF will also finalise its second 12-month review of the implementation of revised FATF Standards for virtual assets and virtual asset service providers, and guidance on proliferation financing risk assessment and mitigation. The outcomes of the FATF Plenary will be published on Friday 25 June, at the close of the meeting.
