Sanctions: 30 New lists will be added in Q1 with focus on Middle East & North Africa

We have constantly enlarged our global sanction lists catalog and Q1 2022 will show a drastic jump in the sanction’s coverage for the Middle East and Africa. Want to know more about new sanctions lists and how our AML solutions use them, read the Blog Post.

Our consolidated database of sanctions is used in all our applications in the screening process of entities that need to be monitored as part of your AML obligations. Additionally, we offer our Data Service as API to integrate PEP & Sanctions lists into 3rd party applications.

The screening allows to identify possible matches between the entities under control and the sanctions included in the consolidated sanctions database. The identified matches, called Hits, will need to be validated to determine the resulting risk exposure.

Over the years, we have expanded our sanction’s lists catalogue, which now includes 143 lists from 42 countries or organizations.

We are constantly increasing our global coverage. With a focus on the Middle East and North African Regions (MENA) we identified more than 30 new sources which we will add to our list catalogue in Q1 2022.

17 new sources are already available with our current catalogue since February 11th, 2022.  These are:
