Sanctions Ownership Research (SOR) in CM1

News | 3 Mar 2020

In CM1, you can check whether there are ownership relationships in a company that is linked to a sanction.

Under EU sanctions law, organizations that are owned or controlled by persons or companies that are sanctioned may also be considered sanctioned.

Dow Jones monitors all EU and OFAC lists and identifies sanctioned shareholders with assets down to 10%, but they also perform alternative controls on access through board seats or executive management. More than 20,000 companies from over 100 countries meet these SOR requirements (of which more than 300 registered companies in the Nordic countries).

Sanctions Ownership Research are managed within CM1 as information lists in the same way as PEP and Sanction.
