Reducing the Risk of Transacting with Sanctioned, Restricted & Denied Parties Worldwide

Denied party screening is the review of goods, services, and connectivity prior to an import, export or transaction. Governments and international organizations maintain a variety of lists of people, organizations and countries with whom it is illegal or restricted to transact business. International sanctions policies are dynamic, and in today’s highly networked marketplace, it is critical to evaluate connectivity before transacting business. Access to affordable, flexible and customizable Denied Party Screening (DPS) services and solutions is necessary to protect businesses and to reduce risk in an ever-connected and increasingly global marketplace.

A full list of our DPS solutions can be found online here.
