Welcome to the EAG website!

The Eurasian group on combating money laundering and financing of terrorism (EAG) is a FATF-style regional body which comprises 9 countries: Belarus, China, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, India, Russia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan. 15 more states and 18 international and regional organizations have observer status within the EAG.

The EAG was founded on October 6, 2004 at the Inaugural Conference in Moscow. On June 16, 2011 the multilateral Agreement on the Eurasian group on combating money laundering and financing of terrorism was signed.

The EAG supports countries in the region to create an appropriate legal and institutional framework combating money laundering and terrorist financing in line with the FATF standards. Among those participating in the main EAG activities are financial intelligence units, law enforcement agencies, supervisory bodies, national banks and other government agencies of member states. As a part of these efforts, the EAG mutually evaluates the national AML/CFT systems of its Member States for compliance with international standards, analyzes money laundering and terrorist financing typologies taking into account the specifics of the Eurasian region, and implements technical assistance programs for Member States, including staff training. We aim to create the conditions of effective interaction and cooperation at the Eurasian level, as well as integration of EAG Member States into the international AML/CFT system.

The key EAG objectives are:

  • consolidating and coordinating EAG Member States efforts in the key areas of combating money laundering and terrorist financing
