PEPs & Sanctions Policy

How does AML, PEP’s, Sanctions and Compliance work. 

The PEP check feature within One Click Verify checks a variety of lists from various governmental and inter-governmental agencies. These lists contain over 366,000 names of known criminals, sanctioned individuals, politically exposed persons and other high-risk individuals and organisations. 

A general outline of the data in the lists are provided below. 

Politically Exposed Persons lists: These lists contain individuals who are politically engaged in various countries. (e.g Members of the Australian parliament appear on this list.) 

Sanction lists: These lists contain individuals who have been sanctioned by governmental or intergovernmental agencies (i.e the Australians Sanctions Consolidated List). Individuals are usually sanctioned because they are deemed to be involved in illegal activities. 

This service matches individuals to the lists by data we know which sometimes may only be name only so it is possible for false positives to occur. For example, someone with a common name like Tony Jack will fail the check due to having the same name as (Tony Jack who is an Australian Councillor) and included on this list. 

If a person fails a PEP check it is up to the Business Organisation / Individual performing the check to decide the best course of action based on the results. It is suggested that a google search be applied though you can also check the lists we use so you can check their entries in the case of a false positive.
