Overview

The functionality provides screening for Politically Exposed Persons (PEPs) and sanctions applied to the clients. Politically Exposed Persons are high-risk people due to a higher possibility of crimes or corruption posing an economic and reputational risk to a financial organization. Thus, the functionality is extremely important when onboarding new clients.

Identification service providers deliver live updates on any possible matching with Politically Exposed Persons. If personal details of a client match the database or open-source information, the client will be added to the list for further investigation on the White label side.

The screening is an additional feature that is not included in the main identification process. All identification requests are available in the Identification requests tab.
