The Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) recently deemed the current framework for public access to unique beneficial owner (UBO) information a “serious violation of privacy and data protection”. Austria and The Netherlands have already closed specific parts of their registers in order to meet the requirements of the EU ruling. And though the Swedish company registry (Bolagsverket) remains open, they have reported a personal data incident to the Swedish Privacy Agency because the current e-service does not comply with the EU Court's decision. So what changes does this mean for businesses working with KYC, PEP or sanction screenings? Join this session to better understand the ruling and get insight to what is needed to ensure compliance with GDPR and the new EU regulation.
