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.

From November 2020 to December 2021, the EU Global Facility has provided continuous technical assistance to the Kingdom of Jordan, through the delivery of 27 activities both online and onsite, reaching more than 420 participants from a variety of institutions.

Jordan was also the very first country where the EU Global Facility resumed its onsite activities following the COVID-19 upheaval, and where it conducted its first cross-functional activity between the Law Enforcement and Justice/CSOs components.
