PEP & Sanctions Search

A Politically Exposed Person (PEP) API that allows organizations to access and verify information about individuals who are considered to be politically exposed. Politically Exposed Persons are individuals who hold prominent public positions or have held such positions in the past, along with their family members and close associates. These positions may include heads of state, government officials, judicial or military officials, senior executives of state-owned corporations, and important political party officials.

The API typically provides the following functionalities:

Identification and Verification: The API can check whether an individual is classified as a PEP by searching through databases that compile information from various sources, including government lists, international organizations, and proprietary databases.

Risk Assessment: Organizations can assess the risk level associated with a PEP based on factors such as the individual's position, country of residence, and the nature of their public function.

Continuous Monitoring: The API can provide ongoing monitoring to alert organizations of any changes in the status of a PEP, such as new appointments, changes in political status, or updates in related sanctions lists.

Data Integration: The API allows for seamless integration into an organization’s existing systems, enabling automated checks and streamlined compliance processes.

By using a PEP API, organizations can enhance their due diligence processes, ensure compliance with regulatory requirements, and mitigate risks associated with doing business with politically exposed individuals.
