KYC Documents

KYC checks are done through an independent and reliable source of documents, data, or information. Every client also provides documents to prove identity and address. Additionally, ID card verification, face verification, document verification, and biometric verification are some of the KYC Requirements.

In May 2018, the U.S. Financial Crimes Enforcement Network added a new requirement for banks to identify beneficial owners. Hence, every corporate entity provides information about the real persons who run the business.

eKYC also refers to capturing information from IDs, the extraction of digital data from government-issued smart IDs such as Aadhar or Driving Licenses with a physical presence, or the use of certified digital identities and facial recognition for online identity verification.

Tatvita Analytics, an Indian Analytical portal, claims CKYCE as one of the Top Certification Courses. It further says that CKYCE is one of the few online certificate courses in India. This professional certificate program makes it easy for the entry level professionals to get into the AML Domain.

However, this program is different from Indiaforensic’s anti money laundering certification – “CAME“. Money Laundering is a broader term that encompasses the KYC process. Experienced financial crime professionals and those dealing with transaction monitoring, anti-money laundering compliances, or AML Investigations should consider the Certified Anti-Money Laundering Expert program.
