Sanctions List Distribution
SWIFT’s Sanctions List Distribution saves you the work of sourcing, updating, validating and formatting the most commonly used public sanctions lists.
Sanctions List Distribution supports your compliance operations with up-to-date public sanctions lists, ready for download in standardised XML format.
SWIFT’s Sanctions List Distribution offers institutions a cost-effective way to source and manage business-critical public sanctions list changes.
Keeping sanctions lists and filters up-to-date is a vital element in ensuring effective compliance, but it’s demanding work: Collecting and re-formatting sanctions data from public lists sources is time-consuming, and can lead to information gaps and implementation delays. Even if you use lists from data providers, you can still encounter formatting issues and delays due to non-standard format data.
Our Sanctions List Distribution service puts an end to manual updates and formatting, enabling you to focus fully on managing your filter updates and alerts. As a shared service within our Financial Crime Compliance product suite, it offers a very cost-effective solution to an industry-wide need.
Sanctions List Distribution automatically updates the most commonly used public sanctions lists, validates the accuracy of data and standardises data and content formats. Up-to-date lists will be available for download from the SWIFTRef platform in OFAC standard XML format, enabling prompt and efficient implementation in your filters and screening systems.
The service will be available from Q3 2016, covering the most commonly used public sanctions lists, including European Union, OFAC and United Nations lists. Further lists will be added to support sanctions compliance by our community.
In early 2017 we’ll be introducing our List Management Service. This hosted solution will provide a platform for managing sanctions lists, with automatic updates in XML format. Users will be able to customise sanctions, PEP and private lists in line with their specific requirements.
