Compliance Screening Scope

IntegraWatch® | Compliance Screening brings you the most up-to-date information regarding heightened risk individuals and entities to help you make informed business decisions, and avoid costly legal, financial, and reputational damage by choosing someone that is corrupt, fraudulent, or of bad integrity.

The IntegraWatch® | Compliance Screening database covers people and organisations who appear on government sanctions or watchlist, are a Politically Exposed Person (PEP), a State-Owned Entity (SOE), or one that a reputable media source identifies as presenting a risk in one or more of our 23 risk areas.


Sanction and Watchlists

 

We monitor over 800 sanctions lists and watchlists from 98 countries and territories as well as international organisations such as the United Nations and Interpol. Any changes to these lists are published or updated in IntegraWatch® | Compliance Screening database normally within 48 hours. Our team of Compliance Analysts conduct research on companies and people placed on sanctions lists to add identifiers such as date of birth, address, and even photographs when available, making remediation of potential name matches easier and more efficient.


Politically Exposed Persons

 

A Politically Exposed Person (PEP) is defined by the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) as an individual who is or has been entrusted with a prominent public function. Due to their position and influence, it is recognised that many PEPs are in positions that potentially can be abused for the purpose of committing money laundering offences and related predicate offences, including but not limited to corruption and bribery, as well as conducting activity related to terrorism financing. IntegraWatch® | Compliance Screening maintains a global database of current and former PEPs as well as their relatives and close associates, providing you with a robust and up-to-date data set you can rely on to protect your company or financial institution.


State-Owned-Entities

 

A State-Owned-Entity (SOE) is a legal entity that is created by the government in order to partake in commercial activities on the government's behalf. It can be either wholly or partially owned by a government and is typically earmarked to participate in commercial activities. Our Compliance Analysts regularly research and update exhaustive lists of such companies helping you identify whether a company is government-owned or invested.


Adverse Media

 

The IntegraWatch® | Compliance Screening database includes a collection of adverse media reports pertaining to one of our key 23 risk areas that we believe would be of value in your decision as to whether you work with a particular company or individual. We monitor global media against these risk areas on a daily basis and provide short, “to-the-point” risk summaries along with risk categorisation facilitating an easy and efficient remediation of name matches from your searches.
