Stay on top of KYC compliance with Veriff

KYC regulations are continually changing and adapting. Whereas these rules once only affected financial institutions such as banks, today they are essential for a number of financial and non-financial institutions. The entities regulated by KYC requirements vary from one country to another; particularly as legislation is often implemented at a national level.

The stages of KYC

Although KYC laws vary around the world, generally speaking businesses must follow the same three stages. They must run a customer identification program and verify the information provided, perform customer due diligence, and monitor their clients on an ongoing basis.

  • Customer identification program
    The KYC process includes obtaining and checking a customer’s personally identifiable information (PII). This phase is usually referred to as a customer identification program (CIP).
  • Customer due diligence
    Clients that are deemed to be high risk will be subjected to greater levels of due diligence than those who are not. Due to this, there are three different levels of CDD procedures.
  • Ongoing monitoring
    Customers must be continually monitored because the regulatory environment is constantly changing and evolving. Similarly, a customer’s risk level may change during their relationship with your business.
