About Regulatory Lab
Regulatory Lab was founded in 2017 to simplify the process of client onboarding and comply with legislation to prevent money laundering and terrorism financing, making it more efficient and customer-friendly for supervised institutions such as lawyers, notaries, and tax advisory firms. Regulatory Lab developed an application, which fully automates these processes. The application replaces the manual process of UBO forms, monitors all parties involved for sanctions and other relevant lists, and provides a full audit trail for when the regulator comes along.
