The mutual evaluation report on the 4th assessment visit in Azerbaijan is now available.
The report was adopted at MONEYVAL’s 46th Plenary Meeting (Strasbourg, 8 – 12 December 2014).
The MONEYVAL 4th cycle of assessments is a follow-up round, in which important FATF Recommendations have been re-assessed, as well as all those for which the state concerned received "Non-Compliant" (NC) or "Partially Compliant" (PC) ratings in its 3rd round report.
This report on Azerbaijan is not, therefore, a full assessment against the FATF 40 Recommendations and 9 Special Recommendations but is an update on major issues in the AML/CFT system in Azerbaijan.
According to MONEYVAL’s procedures and the decision of the 46th Plenary, Azerbaijan was placed under the regular follow-up procedure and requested to report back to the Plenary in December 2016.
Azerbaijan also undertook to submit an expedited report on action taken to address certain significant shortcomings concerning Recommendations 1, 5 and Special Recommendation III in December, 2015.
