MUTUAL EVALUATIONS


5TH FUR OF UGANDA-DECEMBER 2020

This Follow up Report (FUR) sets out Uganda's progress in strengthening anti-money laundering and counter terrorist financing measures. Uganda has been in an enhanced follow-up process following the adoption of its Mutual Evaluation Report in 2016. In line with the ESAAMLG’s Second Round Procedures for Mutual Evaluations and Follow up Process, the country has reported back to the ESAAMLG on the action it has taken since its September 2018 FUR.
Since its 2016 mutual evaluation and its September 2018 FUR, Uganda has made progress in addressing deficiencies against Recommendations 29 (initially rated PC) and 32 (initially rated NC) and the ratings for these recommendations is upgraded with Compliant (C). In relation to Recommendations 10 (initially rated PC), 23 (initially rated PC), 31 (initially rated PC) and 35 (initially rated PC), it was agreed that there should be re-rating for the recommendations with Largely Compliance (LC).
Uganda is now compliant on 14 of the 40 Recommendations and largely compliant on 5 of them. It remains non-compliant on 8 recommendations and partially compliant on 13 Recommendations.
Uganda will remain in enhanced follow-up and will continue to inform the ESAAMLG of the progress made in improving the implementation of its AML/CFT measures.
