Why screen for PEPs?

A Politically Exposed Person (PEP) is an individual who is or has been entrusted with a prominent public position/function and extends to their immediate family members and close associates. Due to their position and influence, a PEP may be able to abuse their position in order to facilitate money laundering and/or terrorism financing (ML/TF) offences, including corruption and bribery.

Although there is no automatic link between a PEP and criminal activities, PEPs may pose an increased risk with regard to ML/TF.

Sanctions screening

Sanctions lists may include people associated with terrorism, terrorism financing, narcotics trafficking, war crimes, economic sanctions, or other high-risk activities.

Digital iD™ will notify you when a customer has been flagged on one of the watchlists at the time of the check.

PEP lists

Digital iD™ allows you to screen customers in real-time against global PEP (Politically Exposed Person) lists and international sanctions lists, and can help you understand your Anti-Money Laundering (AML) risk.

Digital iD™ checks both Australian and international sources to screen for and identify PEPs, their relatives and close associates, and other high risk or sanctioned customers.
