# AML self declaration
The AML self declaration API is useful for cases involving substantial financial transactions, such as the sale of a house. In some countries, before the transaction can be completed, a check must be conducted on the buyer to comply with anti-money laundering regulations. With the AML self declaration API, the check is carried out automatically, in a process that looks more or less like this:
- You send the customer a link to a self declaration form.
- The customer fills in the form with information about themselves, including details such as the origin of the funds that they intend to use or their connection to politically exposed persons.
- An AML check is performed based on the information provided by the customer.
- An electronically signed document is generated, containing the relevant information.
AML self declaration is only available in Norway.
