Black lists of clients of Russian banks


				03.10.2017
						

Rosfinmonitoring, the Central Bank and banks since October 2, 2017 began to exchange information about dubious customers, which financial organizations refused to serve under the "anti-laundering" legislation.

We remind you that banks and non-credit financial organizations are authorized to deny the customer servicing if signs of money laundering or terrorist financing appear in his financial operations. Information on such customers the market participants send to Rosfinmonitoring. At the same time, the client can always apply to another financial institution.

The development of documents regulating the communication of information about suspicious customers to all market participants was conducted from the beginning of 2016. So, Rosfinmonitoring, having received information from a market participant about a dubious client, will transfer it to the Central Bank, which will send it to all market participants. This mechanism was planned to be launched in early 2017, but the start of the information exchange was postponed several times.

At the moment, there was an exchange of information between Rosfinmonitoring and the Central Bank. Other market participants have not yet confirmed the receipt of data. About 200,000 customers (legal entities and individuals) are included in the black list. Rosfinmonitoring noted that getting into this database "is not a reason for refusing" service in credit institutions. It  is not a black mark/ At the same time banks should pay close attention to such customers.
