International and legal agenda
The Czech Republic is a member of the Committee of Experts on the Evaluation of Anti-Money Laundering Measures and the Financing of Terrorism (MONEYVAL). It was established in 1997 as a permanent monitoring body of the Council of Europe. Being an FATF-Style Regional Body, MONEYVAL is a part of a global network to combat money laundering, the financing of terrorism, and the financing of proliferation of weapons of mass destruction.
The Czech MONEYVAL delegation has three permanent members: one each from the Financial Analytical Office, the Ministry of Justice, and the Czech National Bank. The representative of the Financial Analytical Office is the head of the delegation.
One of the main functions of MONEYVAL is the assessment of its members' compliance with all relevant international standards in the legal, financial, and law enforcement sectors through a peer review process of mutual evaluations (including assessment of effectiveness of the implemented measures in practice).
The fifth evaluation round has been ongoing since 2015. The Czech Fifth Round Mutual Evaluation Report was adopted in 2018. Since then, the Czech Republic has been undergoing the follow-up evaluation. The 1st Enhanced Follow-up Report was adopted in 2020. The 2nd follow-up procedure has already started (as of 2021). Reports from the fifth evaluation round are available below and reports from the previous rounds are available here.
