The Enhanced Due Diligence (EDD) should be applied when:

  2. you enter into a business relationship with a Politically Exposed Person (PEP).
  3. you enter into a transaction with a person from a high risk third country identified by the EU.
  4. there is any other situation where there’s a higher risk of money laundering.
