Removal of Mauritius from the EU List of “High-Risk Third Countries”

The European Commission’s Delegated Regulation, published in the Official Journal of the European Union on 21 February 2022, provides for the removal of Mauritius from the EU List of High-Risk Third Countries. The Regulation, which comes into force 20 days following its publication, amends the European Union list of countries having strategic deficiencies in their Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing (AML/CFT) regimes.

The European Commission has, therefore, concluded that Mauritius has strengthened the effectiveness of its AML/CFT framework and no longer presents strategic deficiencies as had initially been identified by the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) in February 2020.
