Why is ABCC asking for Account Verification for each customer?
ABCC is currently in the process of applying for a major payment service provider license under section 6(1) of the payment service act 2019 read with regulation 6 of the payment services regulation with respect to digital payment token service. Under the regulations of the Monetary Authority of Singapore, ABCC as a licensee will be required to comply with strict anti-money laundering (AML) and know-your-customer (KYC) practices.
