Created in 1989, the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) is an inter-governmental body whose purpose is "the development and promotion of national and international policies to combat money laundering and terrorist financing." Users who are new to the site can get started quickly by looking over the "Quick Links" section on the right-hand side of the homepage. Here they will find a handbook that details how the FATF creates its profiles, information on the methodology, and primary recommendations for creating a coherent set of counter-measures against money laundering. Also, the site includes a "Publications" area, which contains short summaries of reports, along with annual reports dating from 1990 and newsletters from 2007. Finally, the site also contains a listing of recent news items and upcoming events and conferences sponsored by the FATF.
