Importance of Sanction-monitoring & Watchlists in Commercial Transactions
It must be keep in mind that preventing money laundering and terrorist financing in business is a legal obligation. In this way, knowing the background of your customers and partners helps to avoid fines and confusion in cooperation.
Only one reputable customer is enough to get fined or your well-planned business plan will fail altogether.
So caution is your best defense strategy. Only work with trusted business partners by performing a background check in advance.
What am I obligated to do as an entrepreneur?
As a manager or co-operator in a company (CEO, CFO, lawyer, partnership manager, etc.), you are responsible for ensuring that each business transaction and co-operation agreement complies with the rules for combating money laundering and terrorist financing when conducting business.
Creditinfo scans LexisNex database to identify individuals from watch lists in more than 225 countries (eg EBRD, European Investment Bank, African Development Bank, Asian Development Bank, Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank, Europol, Interpol, European Union, US, UK, Australia, Canada, etc.) . NB! We offer the possibility to use this functionality through the Creditinfo API, which can be easily configured to interact with your company’s information systems.

Customer-base Control through a XLS table
