KYC For Supply Chain And Shipping

According to the International Chamber of Commerce, Brand Owners, Vessels Operators and Freight Forwarders signed a Declaration of Intent (“DOI”) to combat transportation of counterfeit goods in November 2016.

In the DOI, guidelines have been developed accordingly in various areas to tackle the issue of counterfeit goods within the supply chain including “Best Practices in Know Your Customer (“KYC Best Practices”) for Maritime Operators” initially published in March 2018.

With these guidelines, Maritime Operators, Brand Owners and Suppliers may decide as to whether and with whom they are doing business and who they independently choose to discontinue doing business with, subject to relevant laws.

These guidelines are to ensure Maritime Operators are dealing with legitimate partners who are not involved in illicit trades by verifying, due diligence and ongoing monitors. It consists of 4 steps:

Verify identity of customer; verify basic information of the trading partners including the name, registered business address, VAT number and bank account etc. If necessary,  further verification by comparing partners’ information with a credible database. 

Perform due diligence and ongoing monitoring of their established customers

Identify possible counterfeit shipments, go through a risk assessment of the trading partners including unusual keywords/ suspicious shipping routes

Regular review of documentation and suspected customers
