This short, interactive PEP quiz features fictitious profiles to test your knowledge of what may or may not constitute a PEP or Foreign Public Official in accordance with FATF Guidance and financial crime compliance regulations such as the fourth EU AML Directive. Choose your level of difficulty below.
