Summary:

This paper assesses observance of standards and codes on the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) recommendations for antimoney laundering and combating the financing of terrorism (AML/CFT) for Armenia. The assessment reveals that Armenia has made considerable improvements in its AML/CFT framework in a relatively short timeframe, particularly by replacing the first AML/CFT law, enacted in 2005, with a more comprehensive law, which was passed in 2008. It is also found that the money laundering offence in Armenia is criminalized broadly in line with the international standard.
