  • What is AML screening?

    AML (anti-money laundering) screening checks customers using multiple types of sources (sanctions, PEPs lists, etc.) to check if they’re on sanctions lists, involved in money laundering/financial crime, and so on. To optimize the process, companies use AML user screening software which decreases manual workload and speeds up user checks.

  • What is sanction list and watchlist screening?

    Sanction list and watchlist screening is the process of checking individuals and entities against various databases, such as sanctions lists, politically exposed persons (PEP) lists, terrorist watchlists, and more. This helps prevent individuals or entities that may be involved in money laundering, terrorist financing, or other illegal activities from becoming customers. To do this, businesses often use specialized AML screening software.

  • Why do you need to perform sanctions screening?

    Businesses are required to perform sanction screening by AML regulations. The process involves checking customers through sanctions databases. Effective sanction screening allows businesses to prevent financial crimes by detecting persons who are high-risk or compromised. To automate this process, companies use sanction screening software that allows them to save time and get notified of updates to sanction lists.

  • Who should be screened against sanctions lists?

    In order to comply with regulations and mitigate risks, businesses need to screen customers, business partners, and any other relevant parties against sanctions lists. This helps avoid potential involvement with individuals or entities involved in prohibited or restricted activities. Sanction checking also allows to ensure a safe and compliant business environment.

  • Is PEP screening mandatory?

    PEP screening is not universally mandatory, but is often required by regulatory bodies in many sectors. Screening politically exposed persons (PEPs) helps identify individuals who hold influential or prominent public positions, reducing the risks associated with corruption, bribery, and money laundering. Specific requirements may vary depending on the jurisdiction and industry in which your company operates. To meet these requirements, companies use automated PEP screening solutions.

  • What is an OFAC sanctions list?

    The OFAC sanctions list refers to the individuals, entities, organizations, and countries that are subject to economic and trade sanctions imposed by the U.S. Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC). The OFAC sanctions list includes individuals involved in terrorism, drug trafficking, weapons proliferation, human rights abuses, and other illicit activities. To identify such individuals, companies perform customer screening using AML screening tools.
