Outreach

As part of its Offsite Supervision, the Financial Services Commission (the “FSC”) launched its 1st Cycle of the Transaction Monitoring and Suspicious Transaction Report Questionnaire (“STR Questionnaire”) in October 2020.

 

The STR Questionnaire is an offsite supervisory tool aimed to assist the FSC in monitoring its licensees on Anti-Money Laundering /Countering the Financing of Terrorism (“AML/CFT”) issues, as well as identifying and mitigating emerging Money Laundering / Terrorism Financing (“ML/TF”) risks in a timely manner.

 

In this respect, the STR Presentation highlights the good practices adopted by the
FSC licensees and the deficiencies identified. The aim of the presentation is also to strengthen the transaction monitoring and STR obligations of FSC licensees.

 

The STR Presentation on ‘Overview of Transaction Monitoring and Suspicious Transaction Report filing practices by FSC licensees’ can be viewed here.

Targeted Financial Sanctions (‘TFS’) refer to the measures for asset freezing and prohibitions to prevent funds or other assets from being made available, directly or indirectly, for the benefit of designated persons and entities.

Recommendation 6 of the Financial Action Task Force requires each country to implement the targeted financial sanctions regimes to comply with the United Nations Security Council Resolutions (UNSCRs) relating to the prevention and suppression of terrorism and terrorist financing.

In this respect, the presentation on TFS and PF provides an overview of the FATF Recommendations and highlights the objective of TFS and PF supervision system in Mauritius as well as the corresponding challenges.
