Belgian implementation of the ruling of the European Court of Justice on public access to UBO register

The UBO register is a centralized database used to prevent money laundering, terrorist financing, and related criminal activities by tracking the natural persons who ultimately control companies and other legal entities. In the past, public access to certain UBO data was allowed, but the European Court of Justice ruled that such access was invalid. The Belgian legislator subsequently made legislative changes that restrict public access to the UBO register to those who can demonstrate a legitimate interest related to fighting money laundering and related criminal activities. This text provides details on the legislative changes and the conditions that qualify as a legitimate interest for access to the UBO register.
