The FATF maintains a "black list" of various countries that show significant strategic deficiencies in the fight against money laundering and calls for increased diligence in dealing with these countries. Transactions and business relationships in connection with these countries are subject to the special duty of clarification (§31 in connection with §32 para. 4 and §33 para. 2 of the Regulations of SRO PolyReg).
Furthermore, the FATF maintains a "grey list" of countries that actively cooperate with the FATF to address strategic deficiencies in their anti-money laundering regulations. These countries are subject to increased monitoring, which may be an indication of the special duty of clarification (§31 in connection with §32 para. 1 and §33 para. 1 of the Regulations of SRO PolyReg).
