Customer Due Diligence (CDD) and Enhanced Due Diligence (EDD)

With the S + P Onboarding Check you fulfill the general due diligence requirements (CDD) according to § 10 GwG. This includes

  1. the identification of the contractual partner and, if applicable, of the person acting on his behalf in accordance with § 11 para 4 and § 12 para 1 and 2 as well as the verification whether the person acting on behalf of the contractual partner is authorized to do so
  2. clarifying whether the contracting party is acting on behalf of a beneficial owner and, if so, identifying the beneficial owner in accordance with § 11 paragraph 5. This includes, in cases where the contracting party is not a natural person, the duty to find out the ownership and control structure of the contracting party by reasonable means,
  3. obtaining and assessing information on the purpose and intended nature of the business relationship, insofar as this information is not already unequivocally apparent from the business relationship in the individual case,
  4. Using appropriate risk-oriented procedures, whether the contractual partner or the beneficial owner is a politically exposed person, a family member or a person known to be closely associated.

If the S + P Onboarding Check shows a higher client risk profile, we carry out EDD checks. Appropriate measures are taken to determine the origin of the assets to be used in the business relationship or transaction. A supplementary Adverse Media Check is also carried out here.

With the Adverse Media Check , a check is carried out on the following facts:

  • Anti-competitive behavior
  • Financial difficulty
  • Information rights / copyright / patent issues
  • Management problems
  • Environmental problems
  • Product / service problems
  • Production / supply chain problems
