What are PEPs and Sanctions?

Politically Exposed Person (PEP)

A “politically exposed person” or “PEP” is an individual that holds a prominent public position or function. Due to their role, they may be more susceptible to bribery, corruption or other money laundering offences, as a result of this they are high-risk.

If an individual is identified as a PEP, this does not mean that they are involved in criminal activity, but it means that precautions may need to be taken as they are of higher risk to a business.

Sanctions and Sanctions Checks

Sanctions are restrictions imposed on individuals, entities or countries; in an effort to stop their activities and apply pressure on them to change their unlawful pursuits.

Sanctions checks are detailed searches against government and international databases of Sanctions Lists of individuals, entities, countries or organisations who are legally restricted from certain activities or industries.
