Data Verification and Validation Process on the Open Finance Platform

As an effort to enforce the preventive aspect, following regulatory recommendations, in carrying out its operations, every financial service provider is required to carry out a Know Your Customer (KYC) process. In KYC, there are a series of verification and validation processes for several data related to prospective customers. Meanwhile, the KYC process can be done traditionally by meeting directly with prospective customers and checking the required documents; or by taking advantage of technology so that all the processes can be done online.

Data verification and validation have different roles in KYC. The data submitted by prospective customers will be verified during the verification process, for example, by comparing the photo on the identity card with the real face. Meanwhile, the validation process is the accompanying stage. For example, when the identity card has been verified, the existing data can be validated with the database at the Directorate General of Civil Registration to ensure that the NIK entered is valid and registered.

Provides a seamless verification and validation process

e-KYC is regulated under Financial Services Authority Regulation No.13/POJK.02/2018 concerning digital financial innovation (regulatory sandbox). Meanwhile, in the regulation, e-KYC is defined as a technology-based platform that provides identification and verification services for prospective customers or customers using population data sourced from Dukcapil.
