FATF Guidelines

Utilize Crystal analytics platform to strengthen your AML and CFT procedures as per the FATF Red Flag Indicators Report
What is the risk-based approach to virtual assets recommended by the FATF?
Scope of guidance
The risk-based approach to counteracting money-laundering and terrorism-financing applies to all direct and indirect virtual asset service providers
National coordination
The international success of this approach will have a lot to do with the regulatory procedures put in place at a local and regional level
Mitigating ML/ FT risk
The guidance set out by the FATF recommends first understanding and then mitigating risk by means of transparency and regulatory co-operation
Ongoing monitoring
As theft and fraud in the blockchain industry increases, consistent monitoring and risk-assessing is required to combat illicit activity
How Crystal enables Red Flag Indicator ML and FT monitoring for VASPs
