Pursuant to the USA PATRIOT Act and final rules issued by the U.S. Department of the Treasury, a U.S. bank or a U.S. broker-dealer in securities (a "Covered Financial Institution") is required to obtain certain information from any "Foreign Bank" that maintains a correspondent account with it.
As permitted by the final rules, BNP Paribas Fortis SA/NV has prepared a Global Certification for use by any financial institution that believes it requires a Patriot Act Certification from those entities or one of their branches or offices.
Please use those Certifications instead of asking Fortis Bank (Belgium) (or one of its branches or offices) to complete a separate Certification form.
|For BNP Paribas Fortis (Belgium)|
|the BNP Paribas Fortis Bank Global Certification Regarding Correspondent Accounts for BNP Paribas Fortis (Belgium) accounts|
|or those of BNP Paribas Fortis Bank (Belgium) branches and offices|
If the particular BNP Paribas Fortis business that maintains a correspondent account with your institution is not listed in our Certification, or if you have any questions with regard to this Certification, please advise us at AcceptancesServices.IB@bnpparibasfortis.com.
