Q&A regarding the uploading of documentation

  • Why do we need a photo of proof of identity for your child?

    The Danish Anti-Money Laundering Act requires us as a bank to be able to provide documentation to the authorities showing that we know who our customers are and how they use our products and services. This is to help prevent fraudulent use of the financial system. 

    Among other things, knowing our customers enables us to take action if a customer behaves in an unusual way or if we can see that unusual transactions are made via the customer’s account. We are under obligation to notify the authorities if we suspect that a transaction may be illegal, for example if there are any signs of money laundering or activities related to the financing of terrorism. 

    We understand that some customers may feel inconvenienced when we ask for proof of identity and/or other information. But just as the security checks at an airport ensure that all travellers can enjoy a safe flight, it is both necessary and in the best interests of us all that we meet the legal requirements for knowing our customers.  

  • Do we have a legal right to ask questions and/or ask for proof of identity?

    Yes, like all other banks, we must be able to provide documentation to the authorities showing that we know who our customers are and understand how they use our products and services. 

    Our obligation to establish and maintain our knowledge of our customers is set out in section 11 of the Danish Anti-Money Laundering Act. You can find section 11 of the Danish Anti-Money Laundering Act below with the relevant parts of the rules underlined.

    The rules do not state specifically which documents we as a bank must require our customers to submit to us. Section 11(1)(ii) of the Danish money Laundering Act states that the bank “[…] must verify the customer's identity information on the basis of documents, data or information obtained from a reliable and independent source”. 

    All banks must therefore themselves assess what documentation they deem sufficient to enable them to comply with the rules of Danish legislation. 

    Danske Bank generally requests that all customers provide us with a copy of a valid photo ID and health insurance card because we believe that this is the most secure way of documenting that the customer is the person that the customer claims to be.
