Namibia’s Risk of Grey-Listing

Namibia's Risk of Grey-Listing in AML/CFT Compliance

In light of the concerns raised about Namibia facing the threat of being grey-listed due to non-compliance with international anti-money laundering and counter-terrorism financing standards, as a company specializing in KYC (Know Your Customer) compliance software, we at IDToday understand the gravity of the situation and the potential impact on the financial sector and wider economy.

Namibia's Progress in Enhancing Regulatory Frameworks

t’s commendable that Namibia has shown progress in technical compliance and effectiveness in several areas, as mentioned by Minister Iipumbu Shiimi. This demonstrates a commitment to enhancing the regulatory framework and addressing the deficiencies identified by the Eastern and Southern African Anti-Money Laundering Group (ESAAMLG) and the Financial Action Task Force (FATF).

Strengthening Financial Integrity through Joint Efforts

By working together, we can enhance Namibia’s financial integrity, protect it from financial crimes, and avoid the consequences associated with grey-listing, which could include increased scrutiny from regulators and financial institutions globally, potentially affecting investment and economic growth.
