AML/CFT Activities

Jordan AML CFT Activities

In May 2021, Jordan’s Lower House approved a new draft AML/CFT law, as a direct response to the 2019 Mutual Evaluation Report on the implementation of AML/CFT standards, which found Jordan to be “compliant for four and largely compliant for 15 of the FATF 40 Recommendations”.

Jordan was also deemed “highly effective for zero and substantially effective for two of the effectiveness  and technical compliance ratings”.

The report was conducted by MENAFATF and is available here.
