TradeCard Screens Trade Transactions Against International Watch Lists

Supply Chain Platform for Retailers, Brands and Service Providers Monitors Trade Against International Watch Lists by Scanning Each Transaction at Three Different Points

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - March 10, 2010) - TradeCard, Inc., the supply chain collaboration platform of choice for more than 5,000 retailers, brands, manufacturers and service providers in over 60 countries, assists its customers in monitoring their trading partners to protect themselves from transacting with individuals that appear on the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) list issued by the U.S. Department of Treasury, as well as related international watch lists. Parties to each transaction on the TradeCard Platform are screened against these lists at three different points: registration; commencement of the transaction; and settlement of the transaction. OFAC scanning and watch list monitoring are part of TradeCard's Know Your Customer program, which includes standard processes for monitoring and understanding customers, screening transactions and identifying high risk parties.

"In today's world of complex global supply chains and supply networks, it's nearly impossible to know and monitor every supplier, trading partner or raw materials provider involved in your business," said Kurt Cavano, CEO of TradeCard, Inc. "But the frightening truth is that if you conduct business with an individual or organization that appears on a denied-party list, you may be held responsible and you may be subject to heavy penalty. We assist in coping with this burden for our customers by automatically screening transaction parties on our network against the OFAC list and related international watch lists."
