What’s new at a glance

In Compliance Screening, you can now screen your business partners for embargo areas such as the Crimea, which you define by specifying the country, postal code zones, and/or city names.

In the plug-ins for SAP, you can now exclude specific partner roles in Compliance Screening . When integrating Risk Assessment into Export Controls, you can now open questionnaires directly from Export Controls − Cockpit.


Product-specific and to the point: The new AEB system requirements

Quickly finding the necessary changes in the system requirements for your product has now become even easier: With the restructured system requirements documents from AEB. You can now find all current system requirements for your product (including the Plug-in for SAP option, if supported by your product) clearly presented in one document. We have placed particular emphasis on a consistent and intuitive structure and faster retrieval of information.

In order to tailor the information even more optimally to your needs, you will now find separate documents differentiated by operating model AEB Cloud and On-premise installation (if supported by the product) for each product. As a result, you only get the information that is relevant to your needs.

Benefits at a glance:

  • Get information according to your needs through differentiation of operating models
  • Easily navigate in the document and get a clear overview due to uniform structure of all documents
  • Find information faster thanks to streamlined content

You can download the documents in their current version in the download area of the AEB Service Portal at https://service.aeb.de/en/home/ or via the product-specific support pages. Have a look for yourself!

Improved presentation of service pack information

Already with the February service pack, the presentation and order of the service pack information, which informs you about new features, optimizations, and bug fixes, was optimized. The view that you see now is filtered by your product. Additionally, you can configure and restrict the display according to your wishes. The Continuous view button allows you to switch to the familiar continuous view of the service pack information at any time.

With the May service pack, the display of the texts has been improved in some places, and the continuous view has also been given a finishing touch. In addition, you now have the option of filtering specifically for information that is relevant to IT security.

You can find the service pack information (also called "Release Notes") in your application by pressing the F1 key and then clicking Service pack information.

Compliance Screening

Screening now also possible against embargo areas

With Compliance Screening , you can now also screen your business partners against embargo areas such as the Crimea. You can define these embargo areas by specifying the country, postal code zones, and/or city names, but you can also enter entire countries as embargo areas. If the address data of a screened address matches one of the embargo areas, this leads to an address match.

For this purpose, you enter the embargo areas in the Areasmaster data. These can be found under Master data – Compliance – Areas.

You then include the desired embargo areas in your active compliance profile.

From the Office, select Administration – Compliance – Profiles, open the desired compliance profile, and switch to the Screening lists sheet. In the new Embargo areas field group, you add all the embargo areas you require.

New option "Machine translation of business partners" available

If you check names or addresses in non-Latin scripts (e.g. Chinese or Arabic), these must first be converted to Latin script, as the sanctions lists contain the names and addresses in Latin script. Compliance Screening now offers you a new option for the conversion to the Latin script:

  • Compliance Screening can already process these characters. The characters are converted into Latin letters according to fixed rules (transliteration or transcription).
  • What is new now is the possibility of translating names and addresses into the Latin script via Google Translate. With this variant, the comparison results with the restricted parties are better.

Automatic deletion of Good Guys with condition possible

When defining Good Guys, you have had the option of attaching conditions to these Good Guys since May 2018. This enables you to deal more flexibly with restricted party lists that do not prohibit transactions with the listed persons or organizations completely, but only exclude certain transactions or specify a license requirement.

Good Guys with condition can now be automatically deleted after a certain number of days.

To do this, check Automatically delete good guys with condition box in the desired Good Guys list. Additionally, a batch must be configured and enabled:

  • Office − Administration − Background processing − Batches
  • Batch type: "Delete records"
  • Parameter - Data type sheet: "Delete Good Guys with condition"
