Country risk classification

In addition to the FATF lists, the country lists below are a practical tool for evaluating the increased geographical risks of a business relationship, unless the financial intermediary has established other criteria in application of §32 para. 2 of the Regulations, taking into account its specific business activity and the associated risks. Since the lists are not based on the same criteria, cumulative use is recommended:

Basel AML Index:Score >6 = higher risk
Corruption Perceptions Index:Score ≤40 = higher risk
KnowYourCountry Rating:Score <70 = higher risk

Reporting to the Money Laundering Reporting Office Switzerland MROS
