Free seminar KYC database (fully booked!)
AWDC will offer a free Know Your Customer (KYC) database to all Belgian diamond traders for a one-year trial period. The data will be delivered through an external provider (Bureau Van Dijk) and will comprise identification details (including shareholder structures, any beneficiaries and names of directors, etc.) for 250 million companies worldwide, as well as various sanctions lists, Politically Exposed Persons lists and FATF high risk countries. The database will also screen according to specific risks pertaining to the diamond industry.
Diamond traders that wish to utilize the database must follow a brief practical training session at AWDC in order to learn how to use the system. Only then will they receive access to the system.
The training session will be held on Tuesday the 1st of March from 13h to 15h.
Participation is free of charge. The seminar will be held in English
