Prohibited Parties Search

A Prohibited Parties Search identifies individuals that are either forbidden to work or subject to certain sanctions relative to employment. These individuals could be known terrorists, narcotics traffickers, sex offenders, or designated nationals.

As an employer it is important to adhere to the compliance requirements relevant to prohibited parties set forth by Federal law. The finance industry in particular benefits from this type of search as it is regulated by the USA Patriots Act.

Types of Searches Available for Prohibited Parties Reporting:


Sex Offender Registry Search

A Sex Offender Registry Search checks state and federal sex offender registries. The information reported includes full name of the offender, photographs of the offenders (when available), the offense, and the last known address of the offender.

National Terrorist Watch Search

The National Terrorist Watch Search provides information from federal databases maintained by the US Department of the Treasury Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC). A prohibited party is described as “designated nationals, terrorists, narcotics traffickers, blocked persons and parties subject to various economic sanctioned programs who are forbidden from conducting business in the United States.” OFAC administers and enforces economic and trade sanctions based on US foreign policy and national security goals against targeted foreign countries and regimes, terrorists, international narcotics traffickers, those engaged in activities related to the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, and other threats to the national security, foreign policy or economy of the United States. OFAC acts under Presidential national emergency powers, as well as authority granted by specific legislation, to impose controls on transactions and freeze assets under US jurisdiction. Many of the sanctions are based on United Nations and other international mandates, are multilateral in scope, and involve close cooperation with allied governments.

FDIC Enforcement Search

The FDIC Enforcement Search provides information about FDIC enforcement actions against entities for violations of laws, rules, or regulations, unsafe or unsound banking practices, breaches of fiduciary duty, and violations of final orders, conditions imposed in writing or written agreements. The FDIC has the statutory authority to terminate the deposit insurance of any insured depository institution for violation of a law, rule, regulation, condition imposed in writing, or written agreement, or for being in an unsafe or unsound condition or engaging in unsafe or unsound banking practices.
