Technical details

PEP & RCA data through a developer-friendly API and webhook

This service shows if an individual is a so called Politically Exposed Person (PEP), or a relative or close associate (RCA) of a PEP. We offer verification against the most comprehensive and up-to-date PEP list in the Nordic region (Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland).

Politically Exposed Persons (PEPs) are seen as "high-risk" by financial institutions due to their potential to be exposed to bribery and corruption attempts. Financial institutions are not forbidden to open accounts for PEPs. However AML regulators have strict regulations and process requirements on financial institutions, to detect PEPs due to the risks involved.

Roaring provides real-time access to PEP and RCA data on a Nordic or Global level. Our services lets you incorporate PEP data into your own process flow and gives a robust and effective way to mitigate initial risk, while ensuring compliance.
