Press Release
2 February 2015 - 10:45am

Businesses and organisations, including registered and not-yet-registered non-profit organisations are encouraged to continue participating in the ongoing National Risk Assessment (NRA) exercise currently being conducted in the Territory. 

The NRA exercise is currently in phase 2 which includes site visits and on-site interviews by NRA assessment teams.  Whether you participated by responding to the initial NRA questionnaire or were unable to, we welcome your participation at this point. 

The NRA exercise is confidential and information gathered will not be used for any other purpose; any information provided to NRA assessment teams is maintained solely by the NRA and will be kept in the strictest confidence. 

We would like to thank the over 500 businesses and organisations from various sectors of the economy who have already responded to our calls for participation and assistance during this important initiative. The positive response is valuable and helps to ensure that the full spectrum of Money Laundering (ML) and Terrorist Financing (TF) risks can be identified prior to the next Territorial assessment in 2017.

The National Risk Assessment Steering Group (NRASG), which is leading the conduct of the NRA exercise, is committed to strengthening the Territory’s ability to identify and assess the risks associated with money laundering and terrorist financing ahead of the 2017 assessment by the Caribbean Financial Action Task Force (CFATF); advance preparation is critical to successfully meeting international standards. 

We anticipate the full and continued cooperation of those business and organisations that are active in the relevant sectors of the economy during this important Territory wide initiative.  For more information on the NRA exercise, contact the NRASG using info@bvinra.org or visit the NRA website, www.bvinra.org.
