A proactive Compliance approach

The successful expansion of multinational organizations into new markets brings an increase in compliance risk. Business practices that may be acceptable in some countries will result in prosecution under international anti-corruption legislation. Regulators expect thorough background checks to be carried out on partners, vendors, suppliers and others.

Our corruption and bribery solution

Our tested solution effectively ensures a consistent understanding of risk posed by business partners and potential acquisition targets.

The RIG tool includes:

  • Geopolitical Risk Ranking to understand risk exposure by country
  • Due Diligence Reports providing indepth background checks on business relationships
  • Risk Screening Database for rigorous and comprehensive screening
  • Our recommendations for further review where appropriate.

Typically in a comprehensive compliance programme key business relationships are reviewed twice a year to ensure information is kept current, with full background checks on all other relationships performed annually.

Find risk hiding in business relationships

Risk Screening reveals risk hiding in business relationships and human networks. Our solution is a comprehensive and widely adopted source of structured intelligence on Politically Exposed Persons (PEPs), heightened risk individuals and organisations.

GEO political analysis

Understand geopolitical risk with The Country-Check service delivers fast, objective ranking of geopolitical risk. It quantifies risk attached to customers and transactions based on country of origin, and is necessary for mergers and acquisitions, security of supply chain, cross border expansion and exploration, and production.

Used by organisations that actively manage risk, Country-Check is part of a structured approach to regulatory and reputational compliance.

Truly objective Country-Check aggregates more than 190 credible public domain sources of political, economic and criminal risk intelligence. This enables organisations to understand the risk profile of a country based on multiple factors.

Country-Check has many strategic applications, for example:

  • Global businesses expanding into new territories - stability of government, cost of labour
  • Product distributors - prevalence of counterfeiting
  • Multinationals reviewing agent agreements - corruption of government officials
  • Online payment processors - deficiency of Anti Money Laundering (AML) controls
  • Country-Check options
  • Comprehensive - Fully customisable, covering the entire range of available risk factors
  • Presets - Risk factors weighted for compliance with specific global legislation and regulation, for example Anti Money Laundering and Anti Corruption

Essential compliance steps

Where Country-Check indicates risk, your next step is to use the RCD Risk Screening Database for heightened monitoring and RCD Due Diligence Reports for thorough background checks.

Enhanced Due Diligence

Enhanced Due Diligence Reports provide a detailed background check on any entity or individual, no matter where they are located in the world.
Background checks are a crucial feature of today's fast paced, globalized business environment. In many cases required by law, thorough and sophisticated due diligence checks can often stand between an organization and reputational and financial ruin.

Reports are used by organizations globally to enhance and simplify the due diligence process and protect against reputation damage. They form part of a best practice, risk based approach to due diligence. Their rapid turnaround and low cost contribute toward a considerable saving in time and money.

Our analysts are trained in proven due diligence techniques of gathering the right intelligent information from open sources, subscription-based services, and public records and documents. We adhere to strict research guidelines and, as a New York listed company, our procedures are subject to legislation such as the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act of 1977 (FCPA).

We have teams based in research centers across EMEA, Asia and the Americas which include native speakers of all key languages.
