The Financial Action Task Force on Money Laundering is engaged in a major
initiative to identify non-cooperative countries and territories (NCCTs) in the fight against
money laundering. Specifically, this has meant the development of a process to seek out critical
weaknesses in anti-money laundering systems and identify countries that fail to address these
weaknesses. Failing countries are placed on the NCCT list.
Check that person does not reside in or is a citizen of a country on the NCCT list.
