The Mutual Evaluation Report (MER) of Uganda was adopted by the Task Force in April 2016 and subsequently approved by the Council of Ministers in May 2016. This follow-up report assesses the progress made by Uganda to resolve the technical compliance shortcomings identified in its MER. New ratings are given when sufficient progress has been made. This report also assesses the progress made in implementing the new requirements of one of the FATF Recommendations that has been updated since the adoption of the MER: Recommendation 2.
In general, countries are expected to have corrected most or all of their technical compliance shortcomings by the end of the second year of follow-up at the latest. This report does not cover the progress made by Uganda in improving its effectiveness. Progress in this area will be assessed as part of a subsequent follow-up assessment. If sufficient progress has been made, the Immediate Outcome ratings may be reviewed.
This report summarizes the progress made by Uganda on technical compliance.
Uganda is committed to the global fight against Money Laundering (ML), Terrorist Financing (TF) and Proliferation Financing (PF). To this end Uganda has formulated a National Anti-Money Laundering (AML)/Countering Financing of Terrorism (CFT) and Proliferation Strategy to address the deficiencies existing in its AML/CFT regime, and mitigate the Money Laundering (ML), Terrorist Financing (TF) and Proliferation Financing (PF) risks that it is exposed to. The strategy is intended to address the findings of Uganda's money laundering and terrorist financing risk assessment which was conducted in 2017. It also seeks to provide a blueprint for strengthening Uganda's AML/CFT framework over the next five years based on the recommendations arising from the ESAAMLG mutual evaluation assessment report on Uganda's AML/CFT measures.
This report provides a summary of the AML/CFT measures in place in the Republic of Uganda (Uganda) as at the date of the on-site visit. It analyses the level of compliance with the FATF 40 Recommendations and the level of effectiveness of Uganda’s AML/CFT system, and provides recommendations on how the system could be strengthened.
This Report highlights on key achievements of the Authority during the F/Y 2018-2019.
This report presents an overview of the systemic money laundering and terrorist financing (ML/TF) risks, threats and vulnerabilities with a potential to harm Uganda’s economy.
