Dow Jones Risk and Compliance has joined Pole Star to bring a comprehensive view of the regulatory risks faced by maritime trade organisations.

As a result of the collaboration, users of Dow Jones’ trade compliance solution can use Pole Star’s PurpleTRAC software to access additional intelligence for vessel screening and monitoring.

PurpleTRAC offers a vessel’s complete voyage history as well as screening checks for advanced auditing, combining transponder signals with Inmarsat Satellite tracking.

Dow Jones Risk and Compliance general manager Guy Harrison said: “Assessing the risk associated with a trade transaction, from the goods themselves to the vessel and counterparties involved, is increasingly important given regulatory pressures around international trade.

“By combining Dow Jones’ highly structured sanctions and dual-use goods content with Pole Star’s vessel screening and monitoring technology, we are confident that this collaboration will set a new standard in guarding against financial crime in maritime trade.”

Using Dow Jones’ trade compliance solution, companies can analyse risk about dual-use goods, trade counterparties, vessels and sanctioned cities and ports.
