Combating money laundering: Germany needs to catch up

The Financial Action Task Force (FATF), established by the G-7 and the European Commission, published its report on the state of anti-money laundering in Germany a few days ago.

The Financial Action Task Force (FATF), established by the G-7 and the European Commission, published its report on the state of anti-money laundering in Germany a few days ago. In the report, the German government received good ratings overall for implementing the recommendations of the law. However, the situation is less favorable with regard to the impact of the laws, i.e. the organization and equipment of the authorities and the efficiency of law enforcement. As far-reaching improvements are called for in this area, Germany is now under closer scrutiny and is required to report annually to the FATF on progress.
