Review the operational considerations and the effective use of sanctioned party list functionality in SAP BusinessObjects Global Trade Services. See how to index business partner records effectively and manage your content and operational activities.
Key Concept

Screening business partners is controlled by three factors: record changes in the source system, content updates, and time. Record changes in the source system are recognized by the creation of a new business partner or a business partner address change in the feeder system. Content updates are recognized by the new record addition or changes to the existing denied party list content within the SAP BusinessObjects Global Trade Services system. With business partner and content being constant, you can initiate a screening at any time with the sanctioned party list screening function, which is controlled by the date and time you want to screen or rescreen the business partner with the existing denied party list screening.

With the increasing importance of compliance in global trade, sanctioned party list (SPL) and denied party list (DPL) data helps you keep track of business partners with whom it is legal or illegal to trade. SAP BusinessObjects Global Trade Services allows you to monitor, index, and screen your business partner data once you’ve loaded your SPL content. After looking at how to do this, I’ll take you through some reports and tips for operational effectiveness.
