Bans on indirect provisions

Dow Jones Risk and Compliance SCO protects your business from violating bans on indirect provisions. The SCO data is subject to regularly scheduled and event-driven reviews. This ensures to reflect any changes in sanctions regulations and ownership status in good time.

Checking ownership structures

EU sanctions also apply to organizations that are majority-owned or controlled by a sanctioned party. US regulations in this area already apply when 50% (or more) of an organization is owned or controlled by one or several sanctioned parties.

The challenge: Security without efforts

Finding information about a company's ownership structure without IT-support requires tremendous manual effort. Companies typically search through commercial registers – a process that's both time-consuming and error-prone.

The solution: SCO data from Dow Jones

The Sanctions Control & Ownership - Feed (SCO) includes organizations that are owned or controlled by individuals, entities, countries, or regions which are sanctioned by the US Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) and/or the European Union.

The coverage: 172+ countries included

Exposure to OFAC or EU sanctions-related entities is far from limited to the usual suspects such as North Korea and Crimea. That's why Dow Jones Risk and Compliance currently manages SCO-relevant entity entries in 172 countries.
