- Moneyval Evaluations
- The Committee of Experts on the Evaluation of Anti-Money Laundering Measures and the Financing of Terrorism (MONEYVAL) was established in 1997, and now serves as an independent monitoring mechanism within the Council of Europe. It is an FATF Style Regional Body (FSRB) whose main aim is to ensure that its member states have effective systems to counter money laundering and the funding of terrorism in place, and that they comply with the relevant international standards.
MONEYVAL assesses member states’ compliance in the legal, financial and law enforcement sectors through a peer review process of mutual evaluations. The peer review system that has been adopted is based on the FATF model, though the process is undertaken against a more extensive set of anti-money laundering standards, including the FATF Recommendations, the EU’s Third Money Laundering Directive, as well as the 1998 UN and 1990 Council of Europe conventions.
