The Financial Action Task Force requires countries to show that they are effectively implementing the FATF Recommendations. Preparing for an FATF assessment can be a complex and daunting task. It entails a huge workload involving research, analysis, training, interviewing, and writing and collating a large quantity of lengthy documents. FATF evaluation preparations take years.

An integral part of an FATF assessment is demonstrating that your AML/CFT supervisory process is effective. And a risk-based approach to AML/CFT supervision is essential to ensure compliance with the latest AML/CFT standards. Designing the right supervisory tools is challenging though.
