Committee of Experts on the Evaluation of Anti-Money Laundering Measures (MONEYVAL)

MONEYVAL is a permanent monitoring mechanism of the Council of Europe, a pan-European organisation with 47 member states that reports directly to its principal body, the Committee of Ministers.
MONEYVAL assesses compliance with the principal international standards to counter money laundering and the financing of terrorism, to ensure the effectiveness of their implementation, and to make recommendations for necessary improvements to their monitoring systems. MONEYVAL also conducts thematic research of current money laundering and terrorist financing methods, trends, and techniques. MONEYVAL was initially an observer to the FATF and became an associate member in 2006.
