The purpose is to deter Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing and to identify those that seek to hide their ownership and control of payment accounts and bank accounts identified by IBAN, and safe-deposit boxes held by credit institutions, and that this information is readily accessible to law enforcement, in an unfiltered manner. The European Union (Anti-Money Laundering: Central Mechanism for Information on Safe-Deposit Boxes and Bank and Payment Accounts) Regulations 2022 (S.I. 46 of 2022) assigns responsibility to the Central Bank to establish and maintain a central database of IBAN, and safedeposit boxes information for Ireland, and a central mechanism to enable this information to be accessed. In carrying out this responsibility, the Central Bank processes personal data on any natural person(s) party to a safe deposit box, bank or payment account in the context of Ireland Safe Deposit Box, Bank and Payment Accounts Register (ISBAR). This may include minors. Personal information collected and processed is as follows: Bank or Payment Account – Customer Account Holder / Person Purporting to Act on Behalf of Customer Account Holder / Beneficial Owner
