PEP and Sanctions checks are performed to match individuals against lists of politically exposed, sanctioned and special interest persons. Performing these checks is one of Veriff's optional services.

We will perform PEP checks only for the verifications that were approved. The data from the document (name and date of birth) will be used for this.

The contents of a possibly matched check result can be obtained by sending a GET request for the session ID of the customer. This is shown in our documentation under /sessions/{sessionId}/person.
