With the November 2022 service pack, the Polish restricted party list has been added to AEB's portfolio of restricted party lists. If this list is relevant for your company and you want to integrate it into your AEB Compliance Screening software, you can license the Polish list in addition to the already included content.
What is the meaning of this restricted party list?
By creating this national restricted party list, the Polish government complements the EU's personal sanctions with own national listings. Therefore, the Polish list exists in addition to the EU CFSP list. In addition to the restrictions from EU sanctions regulations (e.g. bans on the direct and indirect provision of economic or financial resources), national sanctions under Polish law may be applied against the sanctioned persons or entities. These are, for example, exclusion from the procedure for winning public contracts in Poland or entry in the list of foreigners whose presence on the territory of the Republic of Poland is unwanted. Therefore, depending on the type and scope of sanctions imposed on the listed persons and entities, their legal consequences may impact your business with an affected business partner (on the Polish list) in various ways. In most cases, you must ensure that you comply with the ban on the direct and indirect provision of economic or financial resources to the sanctioned individuals or companies.
This list is published by the Ministerstwo Spraw Wewnętrznych i Administracji (Ministry of Internal Affairs and Administration). On the authority’s website you will find the relevant decisions on the inclusion of the respective sanctioned persons or entities on the basis of which you can assess the legal consequences for your business in detail.
Which companies need to screen against the Polish restricted party list?
Screening against this list is relevant for companies or entities established under Polish law or subject to Polish law. The former refers to Polish companies with a Polish legal form, the latter may also include, for example, branches of companies incorporated abroad that are registered in Poland or trade in Poland. Often, other companies also choose to screen against the Polish list if, for example, their group-wide compliance policies or contractual obligations require them to do so.
Do you need to license this list if you use third-party content in Compliance Screening?
If you screen your business partners against restricted party list content from third parties (such as Reguvis or Dow Jones) in your AEB Compliance Screening application, the Polish restricted party list may already be included in your content, and you may not need to license this list separately. Contact your content provider directly to inquire about this.
