What are PEPs and Sanctions?

Under Anti-Money Laundering regulations, businesses such as financial institutions and other large corporates must complete PEPs and Sanctions screening as part of their Know Your Customer (KYC) process. Failure to have adequate risk-based procedures in place can lead to substantial fines for the business.

What is a PEP?

A PEP is a Politically Exposed Person. These individuals represent a higher level of money-laundering risk due to the fact that they, or someone close to them, hold a prominent position that makes them more vulnerable to negative influences such as bribery or corruption. Screening for PEPs enables businesses to identify these high-risk customers, thereby ensuring robust AML compliance measures are in place.

What are Sanctions?

Sanctions are restrictions placed on countries, businesses or individuals to prevent them from engaging in certain activities. As part of AML regulations, businesses are required to check Sanctions Lists prior to working with new customers to ensure that they do not work with sanctioned individuals.
