Sanctions
PEPs
Watchlists
→ High-risk individuals/entities

Read more about our data sources.

  • What is AML?

    Anti-Money Laundering is a set of actions your business takes to prevent “bad actors” from disguising illegally obtained money as legitimate income.

  • What is KYC?

    Know Your Customer/Client involves verifying the identity of a potential customer, and identifying any risks associated with doing business with them.

  • What is CFT?

    Combatting of the Financing of Terrorism are steps your business takes to prevent those a government designates as a terrorist from accessing funding and financial services.

  • What’s a PEP?

    A politically exposed person has a prominent public role and may be at a higher risk of involvement in bribery and corruption because of the influence they hold.

  • What is 6AMLD?

    This is the sixth iteration of the EU’s Anti-Money Laundering Directive. It’s important you take a look at your company’s AML processes to ensure you comply.

What happens if you don’t comply with 6AMLD?

Just like with GDPR a few years back, AMLD is something many more people and businesses will have to comply with — even those that didn’t before. If you don’t comply, you risk fines, penalties and even jail time (yikes!).

How Complytron can help you comply with 6AMLD

  • Check all your clients against global sanctions lists at both onboarding and during the entire customer lifecycle
  • Check your clients against our PEP database. We even specialise in European PEP data, so if your business operates in this region, it’s a good idea to add our PEP screening to your AML/KYC processes.
  • Check your clients against our high-risk names database — this is our own database of individual and entity names found on sanctioned entity websites
  • Your search history is automatically saved on your user dashboard, so you can download your search reports to prove that you’ve run the relevant checks

These types of checks are not just a regulatory requirement; they can help you avoid an AML scandal or risks associated with doing business with a questionable client.
