Money laundering prevention & compliance
Faster, more accurate AML checks. Are you compliant with the EU 4th Directive?
Anti-Money Laundering checks are an essential part of ‘Know Your Customer’ (KYC) policies. Not only are these checks becoming increasingly important when preventing identity theft, money laundering and financial fraud, but for many industries they are a legal requirement.
With the enforcement of the 4th Anti Money Laundering Directive on the 26th June 2017 regulatory changes including enhanced procedures and customer due diligence will need to be taken into account by businesses conducting AML and KYC checks. Failing to make the appropriate adjustments to your AML checks could expose your business to increasingly larger fines.
Along with being compliant with KYC policies, Creditsafe’s AML Checks meet all the standards outlined as per the joint Money Laundering Steering Group (JMLSG) guidance ensuring peace of mind that your due diligence is fully AML compliant.
