Mutual Evaluation Report 2016
See here for Charity & Security Network’s summary and analysis of the Mutual Evaluation Report.

This case study summarizes the experience of the Charity & Security Network (C&SN), a diverse network of nonprofit organizations (NPOs) in the United States that sought to provide input on US anti-terrorist financing laws to the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) during its mutual evaluation of the US. The evaluation took place between early 2015 and December 2016, spanning a period of significant changes in FATF’s recommendation and guidance relative to NPOs. After describing C&SN’s efforts and assessing the experience, this paper makes several recommendations for FATF and NPOs to consider for future evaluations.

For an analysis of US Treasury’s terrorism financing risk assessment and its implications for NPOs ahead of the US’ FATF evaluation, see here.
