AML screening and monitoring as an add-on

Optimizing and accelerating your customer onboarding.

With automated KYC and AML screening and monitoring as a one-stop solution, it has never been simpler.

Using the latest technologies in machine learning and information retrieval to acquire information faster and more effectively than the industry standard we are able to support you in optimizing your onboarding processes. As a first step, AML checks will be offered for IDnow AutoIdent, the automated identity verification solution within IDnow’s platform. Furthermore, it will be offered for all our identification methods in the future.

As per AML regulations, for certain use cases, it is mandatory to perform AML screening and monitoring along with KYC verification. Companies are required to conduct screening of customers against politically exposed persons (PEP) and global sanctions lists to make a risk assessment and to avoid violating various sanctions. For enhanced customer due diligence, the user can be checked against global monitoring watchlists and adverse media.
