The Financial Reporting Center (FRC) is created by and derives its mandate from the Anti-Money Laundering and Countering the Financing of Terrorism (AML/CFT) Act of 2016 with the objective to operate as a national central agency responsible for the receipt, analysis and appropriate dissemination of all information relating to monetary Laundering (ML) and terrorism financing (TF).  FRC is designed to protect Somalia’s financial system, develop, and enforce robust AML and CTF frameworks. The FRC will be committed to working with our international partners, national and international law enforcement agencies, and industry regulatory peers in the fight against money laundering and terrorism financing in Somalia.

The FRC does this by:

  • Issuing regulations, providing guidance and feedback to relevant ministries and agencies as well as reporting entities in AML/CFT regime.
  • Designing and implementing compliance monitoring and enforcement systems for sectors that lack designated supervisory authorities.
  • Imposing proportionate, dissuasive, and effective administrative sanctions and penalties.
