Integrity Due Diligence
VKG has established an extensive Integrity Due Diligence (IDD) process. The IDD process includes collecting information to help us understand who our counterparties are, their values and how their business is conducted. In some instances, the IDD may also include the processing of personal data.

To ensure regulatory compliance with Estonian and international regulations on sanctions, as well as ensuring compliance with anti-money-laundering regulation, VKG may perform a screening of external third parties with whom VKG has relations.
