With reference as above 

a) Legal Requirements

1.  Declarations of name as in Mykad, current residential address, current active handphone number as required by the operation of laws. A debtor is required to furnish such personal data to a creditor and to update when there is any changes. 

This is particularly true esp when responding to a lawsuit in a court of law via affidavits in reply to the Saman Mahkhamah.

2. Furnishing names of nominees and/or updating periodically as required in KWSP (EPF).

3. Updating banks of any changes in address and/or working address for banking purposes. In many cases, the inactive bank acct can be closed and if the acct holder is not contactable with a specific period, the moneys (any balances) will be send to BNM under the  Unclaimed Money Act 1965.

Definition of unclaimed moneys: Moneys which are legally payable to the owner but have remained unpaid for a period of not less than one year after they have become payable, e.g. salaries, wages, bonuses, commissions, dividends, etc.

b) industry standards
Subject to the S.O.P. of individual commercial enterprises.
One can be subjected to facial recognition applications.
