Compliance in maritime

How Marcura’s specialist compliance departments help you and de-risk your business

Globally individuals and entities are added to sanctions lists on a regular basis.

These actions can be disruptive to the routine functioning of financial crime risk management programs. Best practice indicates going beyond screening names and identifiers on the sanctions list.

However, locating, validating and analysing this information can be complex and resource-intensive.

The greatest compliance challenges reported include:

  1. keeping up with regulatory change
  2. instilling a culture of compliance
  3. increasing personal accountability
Operating within a constantly evolving framework of increased regulatory control, the world of compliance in shipping is complex and costly, with non-compliance costing on average 2.65 times the cost of compliance.
