ANNAPOLIS, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Global trade controls training and consulting firm Export Compliance Solutions & Consulting (ECS) of Annapolis, Maryland, renowned for its expertise in deciphering the complexities and nuances of the ITAR and EAR, released today ECScreening.com, its new global, denied party screening product, expertly designed to help companies early in a business opportunity process vet all potential players—including customers, partners, sales and fulfillment parties, employees, vendors, contractors, and foreign visitors.
“When trying to do new business anywhere in the world, it’s important for organizations to quickly uncover if the potential opportunity involves individuals and entities denied export privileges—before spending costly hours doing sales presentations, proposal preparation, engineering design, and management review,” says Suzanne Palmer, Founder and President, ECS. “That’s why we created ECScreening.com—to provide upfront assurance to organizations of all sizes that they are not about to use their limited time and resources pursuing business with individuals and entities that have been denied export privileges.”
With the goal of economically helping organizations pursue safe business opportunities by assessing risk early and the diligence screenings requirements of supply chain parties, ECScreening.com is an innovative subscription-based product available with three levels of purchase catered to organization’s size as well as its manual search, user numbers, and dynamic search list needs. As a single source proprietary, comprehensive Internet risk management tool, export compliance professionals log into a highly secure environment. They begin the vetting process by entering name, alias, dba, and/or known address into the search field. Users can do searches and create a “My Search List” to continuously search names for daily screening. Reliable and accurate screened reports are quickly generated for printing and/or saving for record keeping.
Of note, as a process for screening parties, individuals, and countries involved in export transactions for the purpose of complying with the U.S. Government regulations, denied party screening not only includes denied parties but also controlled products, embargoed or sanctioned countries. ECScreening.com provides alerts on country sanctions or embargoes, as well as program definitions. Risk countries can include embargoed countries, sanctioned countries, OFAC restricted countries, foreign-produced direct product re-exports, and transshipment country prohibitions.
An economical and efficient ‘must have’ for organizations wanting to reach the highest standards in export compliance, ECScreening.com was developed by seasoned and experienced export compliance professionals for all export compliance professionals. This innovative denied party screening product focuses on all persons, companies, and financial institutions involved in global business networks and transactions—because they are required to be vetted. ECScreening.com can screen all names appearing on documents including work orders, purchase orders, packing slips, letters of credit, and invoices.
