The first phase of the reports on Kazakhstan and Morocco examined the countries’ legal and regulatory framework for transparency and exchange of information.
Morocco was successful and able to move to the next round of the assessment process – the aim of which is to ascertain the quality of its exchange of information practices during Q2 of 2015.
Kazakhstan on the other hand failed the initial assessment and, therefore, was prevented from moving to the second stage of the review process. The country has significant holes in its legal framework.
The Global Forum also assessed the exchange of information practices (phase two) in the Czech Republic. It then assigned ratings for compliance, along with an overall rating. The Czech Republic achieved an overall rating of “largely compliant”.
So far, the Global Forum has finished 186 peer reviews and allocated 78 countries with compliance ratings. Of that number, 20 were rated “compliant”, 44 were deemed “largely compliant, 10 achieved a rating of “partially compliant”, and only four have been rated as “non-compliant”.
