What is Sanctions Checker?

Financial sanctions prohibit an organisation from carrying out transactions with a listed individual or organisation. Financial sanctions apply to all transactions; there is no minimum financial limit.

The sanctions search tool checks against government publications across the UK and European Union for specially designated nationals, politically exposed persons and high risk person lists. The tool will reveal global, European and UK financial sanctions alerts.

Sanctions Checker is a powerful, easy-to-use system that significantly reduces the time and effort to perform global sanctions search and checks against the listed targets. Its unique combination of capabilities offers an effective and pragmatic solution to your requirements.

  • Easy Integration – You can be up and running fast and carrying out your first financial sanctions check before you know it.
  • Savings of Time and Effort – Our optimised search features and false positive management take a fraction of the  time to use compared with manual lookups and less sophisticated products.

Sanctions Checker may be implemented as an installed application or may be integrated directly with your existing systems and databases. With either approach, access to Sanctions Checker is via a secure internet connection, ensuring multiple offices, or multiple users in the same office, can use Sanctions Checker anytime, anywhere. Moreover, it helps protect client data as information is stored on your private network.

Reports of a sanctions search are generated quickly and written to a defined location on your network, creating an audit trail to help demonstrate compliance.

The UK plays a prominent role in the global economy and regulators need to ensure that UK companies are not knowingly or unknowingly helping to finance criminal or terrorist activities. Morning Data’s clients are insurers, who are put under the spotlight of some of the most rigorous financial regulations in the world, so it is vital that the insurance software solutions they provide to their clients support their regulatory compliance and provide a financial sanction check.
