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. This follow-up report analyses Andorra’s progress in addressing the technical compliance deficiencies identified in the mutual evaluation report.

To reflect this progress, MONEYVAL has re-rated as “largely compliant” 3 recommendations of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) originally rated as “partially compliant”; specifically, recommendations R 25 (transparency and beneficial ownership of legal arrangements), R 26 (regulation and supervision of financial institutions) and R 28 (regulation and supervision of DNFBPs).

Additionally, the follow-up report also looks at progress made in the implementation of new requirements relating to recommendation R 2 (national cooperation and coordination) which has changed since Andorra’s last follow-up report was adopted. The rating for recommendation R 2 remains “compliant”.

Andorra is now “compliant” on 10 out of the 40 FATF recommendations and “largely compliant” on 27 of them. It remains “partially compliant” on 3 out of the 40 FATF recommendations.
