2018/10/17-19 FATF総会の成果

2. Major Strategic Initiatives


Amendments to the FATF Recommendations to address the regulation of virtual assets


The FATF Plenary discussed and adopted amendments to the FATF Standards to respond to the increasing use of virtual assets for money laundering and terrorist financing and at the request of the G20 Ministers.


This includes an amendment to the FATF Recommendations and glossary to clarify to which businesses and activities the FATF requirements apply in the case of virtual assets.


Exchanges and wallet providers will be required to implement AML/CFT controls, and to be licensed or registered and supervised or monitored by national authorities.


Strengthening the standards is part of a comprehensive approach that the FATF has developed to prevent the misuse of virtual asset activities for money laundering and terrorist financing.


As a next step, the FATF will update its Guidance to assist countries with the full and effective implementation of these requirements of the FATF Standards.


All countries are encouraged to swiftly take the necessary steps to prevent the misuse of virtual assets.


Given the speed of innovation, and to ensure that the FATF Standards remain relevant, the FATF will review its standards as they apply to the virtual asset sector in 12 months.


4. Other Strategic Initiatives.


Adoption of a report to the G20 Leaders’ Summit


The Plenary discussed the FATF’s report to the G20 Leaders.


This report sets out FATF’s progress, since its last update to G20 in July 2018, on its work programme to respond to the increasing use of virtual assets for money laundering and terrorist financing, including the adoption of revisions to its standards to clarify how they apply to virtual assets.


The report also includes an update on FATF’s work to counter the financing of terrorism and proliferation, improve transparency and the availability of beneficial ownership information, FATF engagement with judges and prosecutors, digital identity and de-risking.


Outcomes of the meeting of the FATF Forum of Heads of Financial Intelligence Units (FIUs), which was held in the margins of the Plenary


FATF Heads of FIUs met in the margins of the FATF Plenary to discuss how to enhance the effectiveness of suspicious transaction reporting and the quality of financial intelligence, with participation from private sector participants.


The Forum agreed two reports, one addressing how large international financial institutions identify suspicious activity, and the other describing the practical considerations in setting up public-private partnerships.


These reports will be disseminated through the FATF Global Network.


The Plenary also agreed that the Forum take on new projects relating to virtual asset risks and effective approaches to detection and analysis, and on enhancing FIU strategic analysis.
