One of the biggest collections of sanctions on the data market via API for business

Sanction lists are the name of lists containing information about persons, companies and entire countries on which sanctions have been imposed, which may limit or completely prevent the establishment of economic relations with these entities. There are a huge number of them. Moreover, the content of sanctions databases changes frequently.

Manually checking an entity or individual on each relevant sanctions list would take an enormous amount of time. There would also be a high risk of making a mistake or missing important data. This problem is solved by our Sanction Lists API, thanks to which AML contractor verification on several dozen lists is completely automated. No other business information provider from Poland offers such wide access to sanctions.

  • Name and surname or company name
  • Source (name of the sanctions list)
  • Details of entry into sanctions
  • Date from which the person or company has been on the sanctions list
  • Date of birth

Accurate verification of the AML contractor on sanctions lists with results narrowed down to date of birth

Verification of contractors on sanctions lists is made easier in our API thanks to the ability to narrow search results by date of birth. We know perfectly well that there are people with the same name and surname, and with several dozen thousand records in the AML database, it is not difficult to obtain unclear results.

API Sanction Lists provides information on both general sanctions, which are also called diplomatic sanctions, and specific sanctions, which include, among others, arms embargo, travel bans for specific entities, asset freezes and economic sanctions (for instance, ban on import and export of specified goods). General sanctions concern, for example, the suspension of diplomatic relations with a given country. By choosing Transparent Data's API Sanction Lists, you will gain greater control over entity verification processes under AML procedures.

Full automation of the AML procedure in the organization is necessary if the AML department is not to become a bottleneck and does not stop transactions or sales. A quick search of the database of current sanctions guarantees development and reduces the risk of financially painful penalties resulting from the AML Act. API Sanction lists will eliminate cumbersome, time-consuming processes and accelerate risk management in line with compliance.

Which companies must verify sanctions? The need to check potential contractors on sanction lists applies to entities obliged to implement AML procedures under the Act on Counteracting Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing, primarily financial institutions. Companies that establish economic relations with foreign enterprises also check the sanctions lists, so they check whether any sanctions have been imposed on their contractors in the form of a ban on the import or export of specified goods.
