KeyNorth Risk Insights: Enhanced Due Diligence

Know your risks and comply with the laws that govern your business transactions.

Enhanced due diligence refers to  additional procedures that you undertake to verify the particulars of an individual or organization; and to uncover any additional risks that might cause you concern.

Examples of circumstances in which enhanced due diligence inquiries may be conducted include:

  • Compliance with anti-money laundering laws such as the Canadian Proceeds of Crime (Money Laundering) and Terrorist Financing Act, the U.K. Proceeds of Crime Act 2002; and the anti-money laundering provisions of the U.S. Bank Secrecy Act;
  • To identify beneficial owners of funds, assets or business interests;
  • For appointments of key persons for whom the standard employment background checks are not sufficient. These might include board appointments or C-level executives;
  • To comply with anti-bribery laws such as the Canadian Corruption of Foreign Public Officials Act, the U.K. Bribery Act, the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act or domestic regulations relating to bribery;
  • To comply with fraud risk assessment procedures under certain accounting standards;
  • As a standard risk management procedure when selecting a partner, supplier or distributor; or when financing a venture.
