Global Politically Exposed Person (PEP)

A global service with PEP and RCA information

Global PEP - Politically Exposed Person

This service shows if an individual is a so called Politically Exposed Person (PEP), relative or close associate (RCA) of a PEP globally. We offer verification against the most comprehensive and updated global PEP list, enabling KYC and AML processes to be conducted on a global scale.

PEP status checks are part of the KYC process and mandatory to perform before entering into a business relationship, when covered by the Money Laundering Act. Other KYC checks include sanctions lists and beneficial owners to name a few.

Our developer-friendly REST API is easily integrated into your process or system, making global PEP checks automated and seamless. Try the API in our sandbox environment, by creating an account.

More about PEP

A PEP (Politically Exposed Person) is considered to be a person who has, or has had, an important public function in a country, such as head of state or government, minister or judge of the Supreme Court. In addition, a person who has or has had a function in the management of an international organization is also considered a PEP. A company must take the risk-based measures needed to determine whether a customer is to be regarded as a person in a politically exposed position. If your company is covered by the Money Laundering Act, you must always verify whether the customer is a PEP or RCA when you enter into a business relationship.

When a person at a politically-exposed position has ceased to exercise his or her functions, the stricter measures shall be applied for at least 18 months and until the person is no longer considered to pose a risk to money laundering or terrorism financing. The provisions governing persons in a politically exposed position shall also apply to family members and well-known employees of persons in a vulnerable position.
