  • What is AML screening?

    AML screening checks customers using multiple types of sources (sanctions, PEPs lists, etc.) to ensure they’re absent from sanctions lists, not involved in money laundering/financial crime, and generally trustworthy. To optimize the screening process, companies use automated AML screening and scoring solutions to decrease manual workload and speed up user checks.

  • What does AML software do?

    AML screening software runs automated customer checks across global watchlists, sanctions, PEPs and adverse media. This allows obliged businesses to detect high-risk persons and stay compliant with AML regulations. Automation allows companies to speed up the screening process and easily stay up to date with any changes made to AML watchlists.

  • What is an AML watchlist?

    An AML watchlist is a database of known or suspected terrorists, money launderers, frauds, PEPs, and other high-risk or compromised persons. Such lists are used by regulated entities to run identity checks of customers as part of AML requirements. To reduce manual workload and stay notified on any changes made to watchlists, businesses often use AML watchlist screening solutions.

  • What are sanction checks?

    Sanctions checks allow AML-regulated businesses to get alerts in case customers are mentioned on any global sanction lists. These lists include individuals, businesses or even countries that are involved in in criminal or terrorist activity. The most popular global sanctions lists are OFAC, UN, EU, and HMT.

  • How is sanctions screening done?

    Sanctions screening is the process of checking customers through sanctions databases as part of AML regulations. This 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 be notified of updates in sanction lists.
