Includes OFAC and additional Prohibited Parties Searches
HireRight searches several Federal databases in order to identify prohibited individuals. Government regulations may require that organizations not deal with prohibited parties, thereby making this search a necessity.
A prohibited party is defined as “specially designated nationals, terrorists, narcotics traffickers, blocked persons and vessels and parties subject to various economic sanctioned programs who are forbidden from conducting business in the United States, as well as entities subject to license requirements because of their proliferation of weapons of mass destruction.”
This search is commonly used to identify persons deemed as a threat by the United States, to identify any risks or associations that may deem an applicant dangerous, or for Patriot Act Compliance.
