Your Partner for Seamless Integration and Secure Identity Verification

MGT – Your Partner for Seamless Integration and Secure Identity Verification

The German Federal Ministry of Finance is planning an ordinance to create a legal basis for the use of Videoident procedures. This affects financial companies and service providers that are considered obligated parties under the Money Laundering Act, as well as other professional groups such as lawyers, notaries, tax consultants and real estate agents.

The draft sets out how the Videoident procedure should be properly applied, including training requirements for staff, technical standards and accepted identification documents. Although there are already BaFin specifications from 2017, a legal basis was previously lacking. The new draft is intended to fill this gap and provide clear guidelines for those subject to AML obligations. No major changes are expected for banks and financial service providers that already use video ID procedures.

One important innovation, though, is the obligation to also offer identity verification using a digital ID card (eID). Providers of eID services could receive more requests if the draft becomes law, but large ID service providers such as IDnow are likely to continue to be favored. The eID could become more important as a result of this regulation, as it is less complex than the Videoident procedure.

Partially and fully automated Videoident procedures can be used under certain conditions, subject to strict rules. The draft is currently in a consultation stage, in which opinions are being sought from federal states, associations and other organizations. It is questionable whether the draft will become law in its current form and it will be some time before it is finally adopted. However, eID offers a secure online identification alternative by accessing user data stored on the chip of their ID card, ensuring protection during the reading process and access only by certified providers.

Meremus German Technologies (MGT) GmbH provides a range of solutions for these procedures through a single API, ensuring seamless integration and meeting the highest security standards across various industries.

In 2024, compliance is a standalone value.

Malta’s recently published 2023 National Risk Assessment and its updated recommendations for enhancing AML/CFT measures have, another time, pointed out the importance of a comprehensive strategy for compliance and risk management and also provide insights of the risks inherent in the business operations within, i.a., the gaming, corporate and financial services industries.

The MGT platform offers you a wide range of KYC products, transaction monitoring and stationary payment processing via just one API.

  • Aligning customer risk assessments with the company’s business risk assessment: the recommendation to strengthen the alignment between the mitigation of operational risks in the daily course of business with the overall risk management strategy of a subject person is one of the core points of the NRA 2023.  The MGT 360 Dashboard-solution allows to easier synchronize the rulesets and findings of operational and strategic risk management and provides a comprehensive overview of risk rating, risk assessment criteria and potential vulnerabilities, in line with the subject person’s defined risk appetite. It is a universal dashboard with all data and KPIs in one view, offering unlimited rules and roles.
  • Enhancing CDD monitoring measures: the call for increasing the level of scrutiny for both identity verification and transactions is another cornerstone of the NRA 2023’s recommendations. Especially for online-dedicated businesses, the typologies of identity fraud and attempts for services to utilized for the purposes of ML and FT are diverse and cannot be tackled sustainably without flexible rulesets. MGT 360 Dashboard enables, due to its high configurability and smart process design, the operations teams to effectively identify conspicuities and react duly and diligently, via a market-proven alert system and criteria. MGT furthermore provides FastIdent, offering KYC methods which are suitable for various jurisdictions.
  • Detecting and addressing weaknesses in the AML/CFT framework as implemented: the constant review and reflection of measures and mechanism deployed for fraud detection and prevention of ML and FT are a must for companies wanting to not only abide by the legal requirements but be a spearhead of straight-forward risk management and so protecting the business from harm due inflicted by external wrongdoers. MGT 360 Dashboard and MGT PowerComply provide not only for data-driven monitoring of systems already configured and implemented, but also allow for a review of the systems itself and its strategies (and, if applicable, strategic deficiencies).
