Sanctions Lists – Where to Source the Lists?

The Sanctions Lists, which are one of the most important components of your screening programme, come in all shapes and sizes and from multiple different sources.  

They can be sourced in two different ways:

  1. Directly from the many regulators who provide consolidated lists.
  2. Purchased via a subscription/licence from a third-party list provider of which there are many on the market.
