100 point check

The 100 point check was an outcome of the Australian Commonwealth Government's desire to limit opportunities for individuals and companies to hide financial transaction fraud, enacted by the "Financial Transactions Reports Act (1988) (FTR Act)", which gave rise to the Australian Transaction Reports and Analysis Centre (AUSTRAC).

The points system applies to people opening new financial accounts across Australia, such as a bank account or betting account. Points are allocated to the types of documentary proof of identity that the person can produce, and they must have at least 100 points of identification to be able to establish the account.

However, the system has become more widespread and is also applied to the establishment of many official records, such as a driving license.
