Consultations with private sector
The EAG conducts consultations with private sector institutions of the region in matters pertaining to the practical application of the international AML/CFT standards (the FATF’s Recommendations).
Trends in the development of international and regional AML/CFT systems, key risks and ways used to mitigate them are analyzed during the consultations. The results of the typologies research conducted by the EAG’s experts are discussed.
Consultative forums are a dialogue between supervisory bodies and private sector institutions.
