The main function of sanctioned party list screening in Compliance Management is to compare business partner addresses with sanctioned party list entities. If the system identifies a match between a business partner address and a sanctioned party list entity, it blocks the business partner in question. Replicas of feeder system documents that contain a blocked business partner are also blocked. Any documents that existed before the screening was run must be checked again.
The screening procedure in sales and purchasing processes are largely identical.
You can display business partners and documents blocked as a result of sanctioned party list screening and release them if required. To display, and if permitted, release blocked business partners, use the Manage Blocked Partners app. To display and release blocked documents, you can use the Manage Blocked Documents app.
If you want to exclude business partners from regular sanctioned party list screening, you can add them to the positive list, either from a list of screening results or by setting the Address is on the positive list indicator in the business partners’ master data (SAP GTS tab). Business partners can be added to the negative list if they are to be blocked although they do not appear on a sanctioned party list.
