Input Data Quality Assessment

At RiskScreen we know that screening results are directly impacted by the quality of input data. If you put rubbish in you are more likely to get rubbish out. The better quality the data that is input into a screening engine the fewer false positives and the more true matches will result allowing you to focus on the signal of risk without the distraction of noise.

Most screening providers rely just on algorithms to compensate for poor data quality but at RiskScreen we also help you to identify and correct defects in your input data through a self service data quality assessment tool that comes as part of our Batch screening module.

RiskScreen is the only screening provider in the world to offer this functionality as a core component of its screening solution because we recognise that there cannot be effective screening without stringent quality control of input data.

The input data quality assessment function will check and provide you with a report on any data quality issues giving you the chance to take remedial steps and optimise your screening results.

Adverse media screening

You have always been able to conduct adverse media searches as part of your ad-hoc AML screening with RiskScreen Core. Now you can access the same functionality, fully integrated within our batch screening solutions. We offer full open source coverage, with proprietary functionality to minimise false positives while maximising accuracy of search.


Schedule repeat searches to run automatically at the specified interval (ranging from 1 week to 3 years)


Carry out an adverse media search for every entity at onboarding and periodic review

Key features of the web version of RiskScreen Batch, our most popular choice

We wanted to identify a solution which would meet our exacting technical requirements, now and into the future, and to find a company that shared the same customer service values as us.

After thoroughly reviewing the available onsite batch screening solutions, RiskScreen Batch met our criteria. The system has been developed by regulatory experts and that gave us the confidence that it would do what we needed it to in order to futureproof our screening compliance.
