 Subject: List of high-risk third countries with regard to anti-money laundering standards

The Commission has included Mongolia on its list of high-risk third countries with regard to anti-money laundering standards.

The Government of Mongolia has stepped up the services of its anti-corruption agency, its general prosecutor's office and general police agency and has reinforced its customs police office.

It has worked closely with the IMF and the Asian Development Bank on the supervision of DNFBP sectors, with the US on seizure and confiscation, and with the Australian Government on the implementation of the relevant financial penalties. After that, it developed supervisory tools, procedures and guidelines, conducted both sectoral and individual DNFBP risk assessments and introduced a risk-based approach.

On 13 February 2019, the Commission adopted a delegated regulation, which was rejected on procedural grounds, identifying third country jurisdictions pursuant to Article 9 of Directive (EU) 2015/849.

Inclusion on that list could severely affect a country’s economy, damaging numerous trade agreements with many EU Member States.

Can the Commission therefore answer the following questions:

1. Will it take the appropriate measures to inform the third countries that they are subject to a review (including those considered 'priority 1’ countries), based on existing dialogues between the Union and the third countries concerned?

2. How can it ensure that the third countries concerned are updated in a full and timely manner on the adoption of delegated acts?
