Mauritius exits EU List of High-Risk Third Countries with Deficiencies in AML/CFT Regime…



On the 7th of January 2022, the European Commission removed Mauritius from
its list of high-risk third countries by acknowledging that it no longer presents
strategic deficiencies on the basis of the criteria laid down in Directive (EU)
2015/849.
This came after Mauritius was removed from the FATF list of countries subject
to increase monitoring on 21st October 2021.
The EU Commission Delegated Regulation of 7th January 2022 stated:
“The FATF welcomed significant progress made by Botswana, Ghana and
Mauritius in improving its AML/CFT regime and noted that Botswana, Ghana
and Mauritius have established the legal and regulatory framework to meet the
commitments in their action plans regarding the strategic deficiencies that the
FATF had identified. The Commission’s analysis concludes that the Bahamas,
Botswana, Ghana, Iraq and Mauritius no longer have strategic deficiencies in
their AML/CFT regime considering the available information. The Bahamas,
Botswana, Ghana, Iraq and Mauritius have strengthened the effectiveness of
their AML/CFT regime. These measures are sufficiently comprehensive and
meet the necessary requirements to consider that strategic deficiencies
identified under article 9 of the Directive (EU) 2015/849 have been
removed”.
