By evaluating its members against the internationally-applicable standards elaborated by the FATF and by making tailored recommendations, MONEYVAL contributes to the effective implementation of these standards at the national level of its members. These standards concern anti-money laundering measures, as well as measures for combatting both terrorist financing and the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction. They comprise preventive and repressive measures which are aimed at protecting the global financial system from abuse. The following sections serve as a short description of the main terms and areas of MONEYVAL’s work, with reference to the relevant international instruments.
