Running a PEPs & Sanctions check on a company is an important part of the compliance process. DueDil's PEPs & Sanctions feature allows you to check any business in the countries we cover, and any individual globally.

How to run a PEPs and Sanctions check
To run a check on a business, go to the company’s DueDil page, and navigate to the PEPs & Sanctions tab.
If you or any of your colleagues on the subscription have run a check on the company in the past, you’ll see that here. To run a new check, click the button at the top right.
You can choose to run the check based on the company’s registered name, or you can choose to add additional address information to refine your results.
Click Search and the page will load to show the list of results with a match score shown alongside each result. The match score starts at 100 and points are deducted for every difference between your search terms and the result.
Once you’ve identified the right company, click the company name and the page will load to show the results of the check.
Reading your Check
The landing page shows some basic information about the company, as well as whether the check has found relevant information against each of the check categories listed above. A green tick means there is no relevant information; the company has passed the check. A red exclamation mark means that there is relevant information and there should be further investigation.
To see evidence for each of the failed categories, click on the Documents tab of the widget at the bottom of the page. This contains links to documentation giving more detail on each element.
The feature also shows you any linked businesses and individuals that you may want to check as part of your investigation.
Downloading your check
Keeping an audit trail is often an important part of performing a check. As well as showing the history of checks on the site, DueDil’s PEPs & Sanctions feature allows you to download a time-stamped copy of your check to keep on file.
To download just the check, either just after you’ve completed it or from the list of checks already completed:
