AWDC offers a free Know Your Customer (KYC) database to all registered Belgian diamond traders. The data are delivered through an external provider (Bureau Van Dijk) and comprises 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.

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 obtain access to the system. 

The training session will be held on Thursday 18th of April at 10.00h.
