The FIAU has recently announced details regarding the 2021 Risk Evaluation Questionnaires (REQs) which will be available on the Compliance and Supervision Platform for Assessing Risk (CASPAR) System for completion by subject persons as from 1st March 2021.

In preparation to the required submissions, subject persons are due to start collecting and collating the necessary information which should enable them to complete the REQ in a timely manner.


The deadlines for submission of the 2021 REQs are as follows:
