Screen financial transactions against sanctions automatically on our network

Flexible and customisable screening configurations and routing rules

Choose to screen all your structured message formats in real-time (including MT, MX, ISO 20022, such as SEPA) or opt to only screen your incoming or outgoing messages and can screen domestic traffic, cross-border traffic, or both.

Transaction Screening offers an additional layer of customisation to make sure you only screen what you need to. Create your own rules and apply them to transactions that meet specific criteria, like message type, currency, amount or destination, and choose whether to block or allow flagged messages to continue. 

You can also implement exception or suppression rules to reduce false positives and apply an optional ‘four-eyes’ workflow for additional security. 

Real-time, smart screening for the ISO 20022 world

Swift’s Transaction Screening service screens your messages in real-time against over 90 comprehensive sanctions lists typically updated within 8 hours after publication.

Use our new Smart Screening to leverage the extra data fields that ISO 20022 messages contain to reduce false positives.  

We take care of the complexities for you: hosting, managing and maintaining the screening engine, including a range of logical tests (to detect misspellings, abbreviations and phonetic similarities) and sensitivity thresholds to accommodate your screening logic to your risk appetite.

Transaction screening also offers a slick alert management functionality built into the tool and is designed to make it simple to identify the alerted entity and make important decisions.
