The Ankaa collaboration is IDnow's latest UK channel partnership and enables the firm to offer an onboarding solution that allows customers to comply with various legislative requirements and streamline processes including job advertising, documentation collation and now identity proofing.
Ian Livingstone (pictured), Founder and MD at Ankaa: “In recent years the regulatory focus has widened and all entities across the maritime sector and the related supply chains including crew providers have been advised by regulators across the world to significantly improve their due diligence and compliance programmes to avoid breaching global sanctions.”
“The features incorporate compliance with Know Your Customer (KYC), Anti-Money Laundering (AML), Counter Terrorist Financing (CTF), as well as Anti-Bribery and Corruption legislation of the various jurisdictions in which our clients operate.”
