PEP Data Time Period

As our platform needs to comply with many screening requirements across the world, as a general rule of thumb, we take the path of the most restrictive legislation. In this case, as some jurisdiction's regulators require former PEPs to be screened, we will always flag a former office holder as a PEP irrespective of the time that person has exited office.

This behaviour is true for all the new sources of data that we currently add and maintain in our database.

However, even if we take this most restrictive approach, we currently label all former officeholders' profiles with a ‘Date Removed’ label within the screening report that should serve as a proxy date for when the entity has exited the office.
