EN.SafeWatch Filtering

Tracking the suspected entities (persons or companies) involved in financial transactions constitutes an obligation for both the private and public sector. Therefore, black lists are issued by authorities like the OFAC (Office of Foreign Assets Control) in the US, or the European Commission in Europe. These lists are often linked to local regulations and laws that enforce checking for all financial transactions, and make reporting of list violations mandatory upon detection. Non compliance to these rules can be prosecuted and financial institutions can be fined.Considering the importance of the financial transaction flow running nowadays through the institutions, checking all transactions against black lists manually is impossible.

On the other hand, legal pressure on compliance officers to implement full checking and reporting has been growing these last years.en.SafeWatch Filtering, formerly known as €˜EastNets OFAC Multi-List€™, allows automated AML checking on the complete financial flow (regardless of origin and transport).
