The UK Government and European Union maintain consolidated lists of sanctions applied against individual, entities, and countries. While there is frequently overlap between these lists, as well as overlap with other sanctions, the EU and UK also may apply restrictive measures autonomously.
In the UK, HM Treasury is responsible for maintaining financial sanctions, and the EU sanctions are maintained by the European Union External Action Service (EEAS). Companies doing business in the EU and/or UK, as well as those businesses transacting with EU and UK residents, need to screen against both sanctions lists to ensure that they are in compliance with restrictive measures imposed.
As with other Watch Lists in the IdentiFlo Management Platform, screening against the EU and UK Consolidated Sanctions lists can be performed as a separate request or as an integrated part of any EVS identity verification solution, and with either approach screening can be performed manually within IdentiFlo, as part of a batch process, or integrated into existing processing using the IdentiFlo API.
