Frequently Asked Questions

Learn more about key industry terms and concepts.

Organizations that must comply with Anti-Money Laundering (AML) regulations need to screen people or organizations against global law enforcement and sanctions lists to determine the risk those parties present.

Sanctions lists are a compilation of regulatory and enhanced due diligence lists from major sanctioning bodies around the world. They flag questionable users and businesses, politically exposed persons (PEPs) and suspected criminals.

Major sanctioning bodies include those from the Office of Foreign Assets Control, the United Nations, the European Union, His Majesty’s Treasury, Interpol and thousands of other regulatory and law enforcement organizations.

Performing a watchlist screening after identity verification helps ensure screening data is accurate and legitimate. After an internal risk assessment, ongoing monitoring helps organizations stay up to date on changes to a customer’s status.

Transacting with customers who appear on PEPs or sanctions lists puts organizations at greater risk. Noncompliance could expose an organization to regulatory fines and reputational damage.
