For the global dissemination of the International Standards against Money Laundering, the Financing of Terrorism and the Proliferation of Weapons of Mass Destruction (FATF Recommendations), nine regional groups of the FATF type (FATF) have been established.

The main task of the RGTF is to build systems for combating money laundering, terrorist financing and the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction in the respective regions.

FSRBs assess the AML / CFT systems of member states and develop recommendations for their improvement.

Regional groups are also researching typologies - the most common money laundering, terrorist financing and weapons of mass destruction schemes. Based on the results of typological studies, best practices are disseminated among the private sector, supervisory and regulatory bodies, law enforcement agencies and the scientific and expert community.

Some FSRBs coordinate with donors to provide technical assistance to their member states.
