View un list
Governments and regulators aim to restrict the transactions of individuals and legal entities that have committed various crimes. Since the individuals and organizations on these sanction, PEP, watch lists contain high risks, companies need to identify these individuals and not take action on the necessary persons. That is why companies need to assess their customers on the sanction, PEP and Watch lists to comply with local and global AML requirements and protect against risks. Just one example, there are more than 1,000 dynamic sanctions lists in the world, and these sanctions lists change very frequently.
PEPs are also classified into classes, e.g., domestic PEPs, foreign PEPs, PEPs of international organizations. In this distinction, the risks posed by PEPs are not the same. In addition, family members and close associates (RCAs) of PEPs also belong to the PEP class, but are not as risky as a PEP. As a result, the risks of PEPs can vary. For example, the risks of a president and a mayor are not the same. Below, we will give some PEP lists as an example to better summarize the situation. In the meantime, you can take a look at our articles “What is a Politically Exposed Person (PEP)?”, “What are Relatives and Close Associates (RCAs)?” and the articles “Special Interest Entities and Special Interest Persons” to understand PEPs better.
