Centralized Know Your Customer (KYC) Organization (CKO)

The Centralized Know Your Customer “KYC” Organization “CKO” system has been developed using state-of-the-art technology and keeping the needs of market participants under consideration. The account opening process has become more reliable and secure due to the prescribed requirement of bio-metric verification for local individual customers.

The facility of opening Sahulat Account for Customers with simplified KYC requirements has also been made available to Authorized Intermediaries (AIs) in KYC Information System (KIS).

Under the CKO regime, the trading Account Opening Form and CDC Sub-Account Opening Form have been merged into a single Customer Relationship Form (CRF). Furthermore, customer would be able to update their KYC related information into the KYC database by approaching any AI of the customer.
