Yes.

Within the Client Due Diligence area of AML Centre, start an Identification stage for a client and go to Client Information.  At the foot of the screen, select ‘Yes’ to ‘Do you want to run a sanctions check?

A new child page ‘Sanctions check’ will appear.

  1. Search Sanctions list

The consolidated list of financial sanctions targets search enables users to find information relating to asset freeze and investment ban targets across all financial sanctions regimes implemented in the UK.

  1. Download Sanctions list

Will download the full consolidated list as a PDF file.  You can then add this as a record to the Identification.

Related parties
In addition, a Sanctions check can also be performed on a related party.  Go to Relationships > Add Relationship.  Select ‘Yes’ to ‘Do you want to run a sanctions check?

A new child page ‘Sanctions check’ will appear with the same options as mentioned above.

Please note: Use of the search function does not remove an individual or entity’s obligation to undertake appropriate due diligence in respect of financial sanctions targets.
