Frequently Asked Questions
What type of risk does the TRM Sanctions Screening API detect?
The TRM Sanctions Screening API detects if a blockchain address has been sanctioned by one or more key regulatory bodies, including those published by the UK, EU and the U.S. Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC).
This API does not link blockchain addresses to names of individuals, and therefore does not trigger alerts for individuals or entities on sanctions lists. Name-based screening is typically done in addition to screening for sanctioned crypto addresses by organizations that have KYC programs in place.
Does the API detect if an address has sent funds to or received funds from a sanctioned address?
No — the API detects blockchain addresses explicitly listed by sanctioning authorities. If you need enhanced sanctions screening, such as detecting exposure to sanctions through multiple hops or detecting addresses that may be associated with sanctioned entities but are not themselves listed on the sanctions list, then please reach out to learn more about TRM Wallet Screening and TRM Transaction Monitoring.
I’m already using TRM Wallet Screening and Transaction Monitoring. How will TRM Sanctions Screening help me?
You do not need to integrate the TRM Sanctions Screening API if you already leveraging TRM Wallet Screening and Transaction Monitoring, which provides coverage of sanctioned crypto addresses along with many other categories of risk; however, increased usage of TRM Sanctions Screening by your partners and customers may improve your overall risk exposure (as your counterparties will be better enabled to reduce theirs).
Where can I find more resources about crypto sanctions screening and compliance?
In October 2021, The U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) published Sanctions Compliance Guidance for the Virtual Currency Industry.
