Identification Requirements

A membership application form must be completed and we are required to keep copies of the following proof of identification:

Two forms of identification are needed in order to comply with the Money Laundering Act 1994, relating to all financial institutions. One form of ID from each of the sections below is required:

  1. Evidence of Identification (this must show proof of date of birth & a recent photo), i.e. current valid Passport, current valid Driving Licence, or a current valid I.D. Card
  2. Evidence of Address ( this must show the address where you currently live), i.e. a recent household bill, Bank or Building Society Statement or a utility bill which is dated within the previous 3 months.

We intend to introduce photographic identification of all members on our computers and you may be asked to agree to a web cam shot being taken for this purpose. This will help our staff to identify members and is a deterrent to fraudulent activity.
