Know Your Customer Identity Validation Reading for Bank, Building Society and Finance Company Use

Know your customer identity document verifiers for banks and financial institutionsFinance companies require customers to provide their identification to prove who they are before financial transactions are made: this is fundamental to the way in which regulated firms manage the risk of fraud and comply with the money laundering laws such as the Proceeds of Crime Act, the PATRIOT Act and the ongoing Financial Action Task Force against Money Laundering (FATF) initiatives. Banks, building societies, credit unions, trust and mortgage companies are all affected.


Increasing sophistication of those wishing to pass themselves off with someone else's identity or address means that readers with the ability to read the advanced features of latest identity documents helps to prevent identity fraud efficiently and with a minimal disruption to the normal operation of the business.


Our devices read the full range of proof-of-identity and proof of address documents.
