How to register for the Anti Money Laundering (AML) service?

Article ID: 2120
Last updated: 24 Mar, 2020

To use the Anti-Money Laundering (AML) service, you must register with the Information Commissioners Office (ICO) as a Data Controller in order to be assigned a Data Protection Number (DPA). This DPA number will be required in the AML registration process on our website.

Once on the website please follow steps below:

- Login (Using your E-Mail Address and Password)

- Select My Account

- Select Anti-money Laundering Service

- Select Registration (Shown in the screenshot below)

- Follow the registration process to be verified through Equifax (A response should be expected within 3 - 5 working days)

Equifax, our third party service provider, will then check that you are who you say you are. Once approved, your account will become live. You'll receive an email from Equifax to notify you of this within three to five working days following submission.

PLEASE NOTE that high volumes of applications may result in a delay with Equifax processing your application. If you have not received confirmation back by email within 2 weeks of the registration, please contact a member of our support team.
