As a result of Armenia’s progress in strengthening its framework to tackle money laundering and terrorist financing since its mutual evaluation in December 2015, MONEYVAL has re-rated the country on two recommendations originally rated as “partially compliant”.

Armenia has been in a regular follow-up process, following the adoption of its mutual evaluation report, which assessed the effectiveness of Armenia’s anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist financing (AML/CFT) measures and their compliance with the Recommendations by the Financial Action Task Force (FATF). In line with MONEYVAL’s rules of procedure, the country has reported back to MONEYVAL on the progress it has made to strengthen its AML/CFT framework.
