Table of high-risk third countries

The following Practice Compliance precedent provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:

  • Table of high-risk third countries

Table of high-risk third countries

Up to date as at [insert date]

The Financial Action Task Force (FATF), and the UK government consider the countries in the table below to have deficiencies in their anti-money laundering (AML) and counter-terrorist financing (CTF) regimes. We must apply enhanced due diligence (EDD) and enhanced ongoing monitoring in any transaction or business relationship with a person established in a high-risk third country.

You should refer to our [AML and counter-terrorist financing policy] for further information on EDD and enhanced ongoing monitoring.

The following table contains a list of countries designated as high risk by the FATF and UK government. It also contains details of countries considered high risk for various other reasons. Note that countries not included in this table should not automatically be considered to have effective AML/CTF systems and you should assess on a risk-sensitive basis all clients established anywhere in the world.
