1 Business Scenario

Sanctioned Party List ensures compliance with laws that prohibits dealing with individuals or organizations that are sanctioned by various government agencies of countries where a company does business. For example in US the Department of Treasury publishes the Denied Party list.

Any enterprise that wants to remain in good standing with regulatory authorities must check against the multiple denied-parties lists published by governments around the world. SAP GTS Compliance Management helps make this process simpler and more efficient by automatically screening sanctioned party lists. Exporters and financial institutions can screen their customers and suppliers and multiple document types (orders, deliveries, invoices) against such lists quickly

and easily.

With recent rule changes, exporters, importers, and financial institutions must shoulder increased legal responsibility for knowing the identities of their end customers. Noncompliance can result in severe penalties. Therefore any enterprise that wants to remain in good standing with regulatory authorities must check against the multiple denied parties lists published by governments around the world.
