2nd round ESAAMLG 5th - 16th June 2017

Date: June 09, 2017


Mauritius is a member of the Eastern and Southern African Anti Money Laundering Group (ESAAMLG) since 1999. As such, it endorsed the recommendations of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) and committed itself to implement these recommendations to combat money laundering and terrorist financing (ML/TF).​


Mauritius is at present undergoing the 2nd round of mutual evaluation of the Anti-Money Laundering and Combating the Financing of Terrorism (AML/CFT) regime, based on the 2012 FATF Recommendations and its 2013 Methodology. The purpose of this mutual evaluation is to assess how well Mauritius has implemented the FATF Recommendations, and how effective its measures are in reaching its ultimate goal of detecting, preventing and punishing abuse of the financial system. The evaluation, which started in October 2016 with a desk review of its AML/CFT legal and institutional framework, will end with an on-site visit in June 2017 by Assessors from member countries.​ The onsite visit is being carried out from 5th to 16th June 2017.​
