Answers to your questions about Sanctions List Monitor

Table of contents

Who can register for Sanctions List Monitor?

Sanctions List Monitor is a free service available to financial institutions. It’s ideal for compliance, risk and payments teams responsible for ensuring sanctions lists and screening systems are up-to-date. To use it, you just need to register and specify the lists for which you want to receive alerts.  

Will it provide me with total coverage of sanctions changes?

Sanctions List Monitor covers the key public sanctions lists including those published by the United States, European Union, United Kingdom, Canada, Switzerland and the United Nations.

If there are other lists you need to cover, you may need to subscribe to them separately.

How do you present the change data? Is it edited?

The Sanctions List Monitor change notifications provide the full detail of changes to sanctions list versions. We don’t edit the data, but it is re-formatted to a standard format for delivery. You can view an example of the notification format by downloading our fact sheet.

How can you provide change alerts ahead of official notifications?

Sanctions List Monitor constantly monitors the official sites, and sends an alert as soon as a change is detected. This is often before the official sites send out their notifications.

Why do the notifications sometimes show additional information not shown in the delta report from the regulator’s website?

Sanctions List Monitor provides a complete change report that considers all fields in monitored sanctions lists. On occasion this can mean that changes are detected that are not otherwise announced on the regulatory site, but that are present in the published sanctions lists.

Can I export the information in the alerts to other applications?

You may use the information in the emails for any of your processes. At present, the information is only available in the html-formatted emails.
