Once they have been updated by the presiding authorities, the required sanctioned party lists are scanned by M.SecureTrade Sanctioned Party List Screening. By default, the sanctions list is that from the German Federal Gazette (Bundesanzeiger). However, the application’s flexible architecture makes it possible to run checks on other lists. The data from these lists is then used in three scenarios:
