S - Sanctions (Spelling It Out...)

S - Sanctions Check: This check is usually carried out within the financial sector on high risk candidates; positions that involve the handling of money, client accounts and/or sensitive data.

A Sanctions search helps clients meet their compliance and anti-money laundering obligations.

Some of the lists/watch lists that are checked:

The Home Office, The US Secret Service, The Bank of England, The Politically Exposed Persons (PEP) list, The US Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), The list of non-co-operative countries and territories (NCCT).
