Following the rejection of the list of jurisdictions with weak AML-regimes, the commissioner has drafted a new list including 2 levels of listing.
A blacklist, including jurisdictions which are a major treat to the stability of the Union and a grey list with jurisdictions requiring improvements.
This comes as a reaction to the previous blacklisting of Saudi Arabia which want EU countries feared will affect the relationships with the kingdom.
According to the reported information the 23 listed jurisdictions will be spliced in 2 lists having the Saudis on the grey list this time.
The list will be quite similar to the FATF list (regardless previous information which stated that this should not be the case)
