As a result of The Bahamas’ progress in strengthening its framework to tackle money laundering and terrorist financing since their 2017 mutual evaluation, the Caribbean Financial Action Task Force (CFATF) has re-rated the country on 13 of the 40 Recommendations.

The Bahamas has been in an enhanced follow-up process, following the adoption of the CFATF mutual evaluation, which assessed the effectiveness of The Bahamas’ anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist financing (AML/CFT) measures and the country’s compliance with the FATF Recommendations. In line with the FATF Procedures for mutual evaluations, The Bahamas has reported back to the CFATF on the progress it has made to strengthen its AML/CFT framework.
