The service is no longer offered for purchase

Swift has decided to retire its Name Screening service (NSS) by June 2024.

If you are a Name Screening customer and require further information regarding the Name Screening termination process, please consult our Frequently Asked Questions on the Swift Knowledge Base.

Batch screening of databases, and single name checks

Name Screening handles automated batch screening of complete databases and online checks of individual names. Advanced delta/delta screening reveals changes between your data and relevant official lists.

Comprehensive lists are fully maintained for you

We directly source and maintain public sanctions lists, while our partner Dow Jones provides and updates Politically Exposed Persons (PEP), Relatives and Close Associates (RCA) and Sanctions Ownership Research lists.

High performance, cost-effective solution

As Name Screening is a centrally-hosted Swift solution, there is no software or hardware to install and manage – and no hidden charges for lists, upgrades or additional users. You pay a transparent annual subscription for a high-performance solution.
