I am looking to reduce the screening matches, particularly for parties that are either the client or regular payees and beneficiaries. Is there any option to ‘white-list’ names in ZFS?
There is no way to whitelist the parties or entities in ZFS. We strongly believe that the trusted parties should also be screened regularly as the potential risk rating of an entity is subjected to change due to the new found results in our WC DB.
You may have to have a mechanism at your end that detects a regular/trusted party and handle them accordingly. Sending the screening request for them will always return results depending on whether there are hits in our WC DB for that name.
Also, settings in WC apply only at the group level and not at entity name level.
