Monitoring body puts IoM at 'enhanced follow-up' stage
The Isle of Man will no longer report to MONEYVAL on an annual basis.
MONEYVAL is a monitoring body of the Council of Europe, which makes sure countries comply with international standards to counter money laundering and financial terrorism.
Government says it's a positive reflection of the Island's financial framework and is a reassurance to the industry.
The decision was made to no longer report to the body at the 61st MONEYVAL Plenary Council meeting.
The Island is now at a stage known as 'enhanced follow-up', until an 'on-site review takes place'.
Chief Minister Howard Quayle says it's a significant milestone and shows the commitment to playing a part in a 'global fight to tackle financial crime'.
