Most fines issued by Supervisors have been imposed not because the organisation did NOT have controls, but because they simply could not demonstrate that checks had been undertaken. It is also a requirement in legislation to have risk management policies in place to check if a customer is a Politically Exposed Person and many organisations that rely solely on paper based documents may not be employing effective methods to do so.
BTC SmartSearch not only checks the PEP’s database but against other alert listings, including ‘deceased persons files’ of both Government and insurance companies and the Credit Industry Fraud Avoidance Scheme (CIFAS) database of known identity theft, impersonation and first party fraud either as an offender or victim, as well as HM Treasury and other designated nationals sanction listings.
SmartSearch quite simply offers the widest and most comprehensive selection of individual checks available on the market.
Electronic verification with the SmartSearch is very effective as a main system of anti-money laundering identity verification procedures or as a supplement to your existing methods for those awkward cases that from time to time arise, allowing you to commence work with only the minimum amount of fuss in a cost effective manner.
Refer – Second Search on a second credit reference agency
A unique feature for SmartSearch is on those few occasions the report returns a refer rather than a pass, the system will automatically perform a second search on a second credit reference agency, on many occasions this will return a pass cutting down on the time and inconvenience to both you and your client verifying the client by other means. This second search does attract an additional address search charge if a pass is obtained. If this second search again returns a refer no charge will be made to you.
Customer Verification Biometric Facial Recognition
We are now pleased to be able in addition to our usual EV solutions add Biometric Facial Recognition to the customer onboarding process for both UK and overseas individual checks.
This additional element combines both verification of a government issued document which if you have a good copy of you can load directly from your computer or send an upload link to your client via a free SMS message which is required for the Facial Recognition element, the results include both document check and facial recognition results as well as your normal AML UK residential report.
These two additional stages of verification use very high tech software and processes and as such come with a cost. This additional element of will be charged on a pay as you go basis.
