How do I create a checklist or a customer questionnaire in Risk Assessment? How can the global trade checklists be filled out quickly and conveniently by all departments? And what happens in the event of a hit? Take a look at our software demo films on this page – they walk you through the process and demonstrate how easy it is for everyone to contribute data for risk analysis with AEB’s Risk Assessment.

Employees from sales, project management, and other departments find it difficult to contribute to trade compliance risk analyses. Perhaps because they are under time pressure. Or maybe because risk management is a complex topic and they are afraid of making mistakes.
AEB expert Mark Brannan dispels these concerns. In this film he demonstrates that, in many cases, two minutes are enough to complete missing risk analysis information with the help of a digital risk questionnaire.
While data entry takes place, the software performs embargo checks and sanctions list screening in the background. Easy-to-understand questions are used to shed light on further compliance aspects such as end-use. After just a few minutes, the sales employee knows whether there are any compliance problems with the transaction.
So what happens if a business transaction that is subject to a risk analysis actually turns out to be critical? In case of a delivery to an embargoed country, for example, or a match during the sanctions list screening.
Then the employee who completed the questionnaire is alerted and prompted to contact the responsible party for compliance or export controls.
A PDF is generated and submitted based on a predefined workflow. A checklist is then used to document the risk analysis and approval process.
This ensures transparency in the event of internal queries or a foreign trade audit.
How is such a questionnaire created – and what exactly should be checked? Each compliance or export control officer can determine this individually for their company based on the risk environment.
If desired, you can use a questionnaire catalog provided by AEB – or articulate questions and help texts individually yourself. Based on company-specific requirements, your compliance experts can also define who (partner roles) and what to check as part of the risk analysis process.
The same applies to the operating instructions in the event of a screening match or a critical answer to one of the questions. All this is multilingual and possible without any programming knowledge.
The result is an effective and easy-to-use tool for your risk analysis.
