Warning system used by banks

The Dutch banking sector has developed a warning system to protect the safety and security of banks in the Netherlands. This system allows the banks to check whether a person: 

  • has ever committed fraud 
  • has tried to commit fraud 
  • somehow forms a threat to the safety and security of the banking sector. 
For more information about this warning system and its workings, go to the website of the Dutch Banking Association
