The AML/CTF Commission hereby informs the general public, all financial and non-financial institutions and other relevant businesses, that HAITI is no longer subject to the Caribbean Financial Action Task Force – International Cooperation (CFATF-ICRG) Review process and follow-up process.
As of 15 November 2017, the CFATF advised by way of its public statement that it is satisfied that Haiti has made significant progress in addressing its deficiencies which previously posed a risk to the integrity of the international financial system. Members of the CFATF were previously advised to exercise caution when doing business with Haiti.
Consequently, the said advisory against HAITI is now discontinued.
