EY can help its clients objectively analyze risk associated with third parties by using its network of global teams and through its access to a variety of sources of information including public records, press and media archives, court records, etc. The system can also be used to screen high-risk customers from an anti-money-laundering (AML) perspective and identify politically exposed persons (PEPs) or links to state-owned entities.

EY's third party due diligence system

In today’s business environment, the risks faced by global companies in relation to the third parties associated with them, including customers, vendors and outsourced business relationships, have never been greater. Inadequate due diligence conducted by organizations on associated third parties can result in financial and reputational loss and also lead to regulatory enforcement actions.

Rising governmental enforcement activity, especially relating to anti-corruption and bribery laws such as the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and the UK Bribery Act and the increased focus on enterprise risk, has resulted in global corporations taking a closer look at how they manage their third party due diligence programs.
