High-Risk Jurisdictions subject to a Call for Action – March 2022 – notes that the 21 February 2020 call for action in relation to the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and Iran remains in effect
Jurisdictions under Increased Monitoring – March 2022 – lists jurisdictions with strategic deficiencies in their anti-money laundering and counter-terrorism financing regimes and are actively working with the FATF to address them
