The European Commission has updated its Delegated Regulation which identifies high-risk third countries with strategic anti-money laundering (AML) and counter-terrorist financing (CTF) deficiencies. The Commission is required to list such countries under MLD4 and the ‘blacklist’ was first published in July 2016. The Commission has adopted the new Delegated Regulation in the light of the outcome of the FATF's recent plenary meeting and the newly available information sources, which has determined that Guyana has made significant progress on AML and CTF matters. On this basis, the Commission has similarly concluded that Guyana should no longer be considered to be a high-risk third country and it has been removed from the blacklist with effect from 24 November 2016.
