Regulated businesses such as financial institutions must implement AML screening to prevent, detect and report money laundering activities. AML regulations are required in most jurisdictions in conjunction with Customer Due Diligence (CDD) and KYC regulatory requirements.
AML screening is crucial in preventing financial crime, including money laundering and terrorist financing. It helps businesses identify high-risk individuals, safeguard the business’s reputation and avoid costly penalties for non-compliance.
AML screening and transaction monitoring are two distinct processes in AML compliance programs. AML screening runs a check against government sanctions lists and other databases to identify potentially high-risk customers, while AML transaction monitoring is the continuous monitoring of customer transactions for suspicious activity. AML screening is used to identify high-risk customers before they are onboarded and periodically throughout the customer lifecycle, while transaction monitoring detects suspicious activity after it occurs.
Some signs include unusual transactions or patterns of behavior, incomplete or inconsistent information provided by the customer, reluctance to provide necessary documentation, and transactions involving high-risk countries or individuals.
Sanctions screening involves checking individuals and entities against government sanctions lists to ensure that no transactions or business dealings occur with sanctioned parties. Sanctions screening is an important component of AML compliance, helping businesses to avoid financial and reputational risks associated with doing business with sanctioned parties.
