AML / Client Account Screening
International regulators are applying more and more pressure to companies to ensure that they know who they are doing business with and that they continually monitor and screen their customer databases. J-Screen is one of the leading Anti Money Laundering (AML) / Know Your Client (KYC) Screening providers in Japan. We have developed a cost effective and timely screening solution to assist financial institutions and other entities in Japan in complying with the legislated requirements to screen their customers. Our aim is to ensure compliance with the various international AML legislation such as
- USA Patriot Act
- Third EU Money Laundering Directive
- UK Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 and Terrorism Act 2000
- Canada Bill C-25
- Australia Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing Act 2006
as well as with the local legal and regulatory obligations including the screening out of companies and individuals connected to Japanese Organized Crime.
In addition to Japanese public records searches our Client Account Screening checks include various proprietary databases that we have developed over the past 14 years. These databases include Japanese Criminality and Organized Crime Searches (including ASF), Japanese Civil Litigation Searches and Japanese Politically Exposed Person (PEP). Together with a comprehensive Reputational Screening (Rep Screen), Japanese Press Searches and access to over 100 public and private Japanese databases, J-Screen K.K provides the leading AML/KYC screening solution in Japan.
