Free Sanctions Screening Tool

Check names on major sanctions list to avoid dealing with sanctioned individuals or entities

Background

Financial sanctions in response to Russian invasion of Ukraine in February 2022 were of unprecedented scale and quickly became relevant to wide number of businesses and institutions. Financial institutions have been actively using sanctions lists in their day to day activites for years, thus their internal processes are well-refined. At ArcaPay, we have been using tools by external providers as well as our in-house developed sanctions screener for over a decade. In light of recent developments, we felt there was a need for a simple and freely available tool to screen against global sanctions lists. We have transformed our internal tool into a web-based application and invite everyone to use it and make sure that you do not deal with sanctioned entities or individuals.

About the tool

The screening tool below allows you to run single searches against a consolidated list of major global sanctions lists: OFAC (United States), United Nations, European Union and HMT (United Kingdom). Every day our tool downloads the latest lists and transforms them into one consolidated list. All searches are performed using so called "fuzzy search" logic, which means that even partial matches are spotted and shown among results with a similarity coefficient. Please note that due to peculiarities how the search algorithm works, some seemingly identical matches might have a similarity score in high 90s rather than 100%.
