Technical Update August 2022
CKI: screening now includes country codes
When you request a screening of your registrations at BKR, the results you receive will from now on include the country codes that correspond with the address details. From July, country codes are added in the CSV as well as the TXT files. The country code is listed at the end of the agreement. If you are not sure whether your system can process the extra country code information, you can easily remove it. To remove the country code, delete the last fields from the string before importing it into your application. The country code is important when there are changes in agreements with foreign address details. This because you need the country code in order to select the correct agreement when you want to make a follow-up report for an agreement with a foreign address.
KYC: portfolio screening available soon
From September, KYC portfolio screening will be available. Portfolio screening enables you to upload a client file in the portal for corporate clients. By creating a profile, you determine which registers (PEP, Sanction and/or Insolvency) you want to check. As a result, you will receive a processing report showing the individuals for which a match was found in the register. You will also get a management report that gives a summary of the records processed and the matches found in each consulted register.
