If Passports And Driving Licences Are collected, why check anything else?

Electronic Verification can check a wider range of information, thus providing a more thorough knowledge of your client (KYC – Know Your Customer). In addition, it can also enable you to check other data sets such as PEP's and Sanctions lists, which is advisable and specified by the 4th European Money Laundering Directive.

Do you need permission to perform a check?
