Maritime Sanctions Compliance

Pole Star identified a need for a broad variety of users to screen ships, their ownership and management for sanctions compliance combined with real time ship tracking.pole star To do this, my team:

  • Built easy to use software to speed up checking, which previously had taken users hours, to deliver a result in minutes comprising five services – Global Sanctions, Country Sanctions, Ship Movement History, Port State Control, and Geo-political Risks
  • Integrated third party information to ensure best of breed data for the application
  • Created software capable of responding within hours to changes in regulatory requirements and in third party data

The software was adopted by major trading banks, insurers and is scheduled to be integrated with the Pole Star Platform to deliver the same benefits to commercial maritime users.
