Do you already have access to Bureau Van Dijk’s Database?
As previously announced, AWDC is offering a Know Your Customer (KYC) database to all registered diamond traders for a free one-year trial period. The database, delivered through an external provider (Bureau Van Dijk), comprises identification details for 250 million companies worldwide, as well as various sanctions lists, Politically Exposed Persons lists and FATF high risk countries. The database also screens according to specific risks pertaining to the diamond industry.
Free access to the database is available via www.registereddiamondcompanies.be. This will enable you to gather more information about your clients.
Via this link you can download a brief summary (A3 format) and a Q&A that provides answers to the most frequently asked questions.
If you do not yet have access to or have difficulties using the database, please contact the AWDC AML & Compliance Helpdesk via firstname.lastname@example.org (03/222.05.06) or email@example.com (03/222 05 03).
