All identified persons in a corporate relationship including all beneficial owners are screened on all international PEP, sanctions, black and watch lists. Hits are reported with a hit rate, the respective list and the office held. Within the scope of the KYC check, the persons checked are marked accordingly. If required, validation of the PEP status is carried out via our KYC service provider. Similar names are also shown in the results to minimize the risk of typing errors. The obligated party has the option to check the relevance of this information and either include it in the KYC file or ignore it.
