FATF Plenary, March 2022

Paris, 28 February 2022

Under the German Presidency of Dr Marcus Pleyer, delegates representing 206 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 FATF Plenary on 1-4 March 2022.

The event will take place in a hybrid format with a significant number of participants expected in person due to the gradual easing of COVID-19 related restrictions in many countries.

During four days of meetings, delegates will discuss key issues, including revisions to the FATF Recommendations to strengthen transparency of beneficial ownership information, a priority for the FATF and the international community.

Delegates will finalise a report that focuses on the money laundering and terrorist financing risks arising from migrant smuggling. They will discuss the assessment of France’s measures to combat money laundering and terrorist financing, and hear the progress made by some jurisdictions identified as presenting a risk to the financial system.

The outcomes of the FATF Plenary will be published on Friday 4 March, at the close of the meeting.
