A Detailed Due Diligence Review that Eliminates Screening Costs for Multinational Companies
“TRACEcertification provides the compliance community with an invaluable service by setting a global standard for third party due diligence that is based on the highest benchmarks.”
General Counsel – Head Legal & Integrity IMA,
TRACEcertification is a comprehensive due diligence review, analysis and approval process establishing that an individual or organization has been thoroughly vetted, trained and certified by TRACE. Certification by TRACE signifies that a company or individual has completed an intensive review that meets international requirements. TRACEcertification reports can also be purchased by the third party intermediaries vetted, who can then provide copies to their business partners, eliminating screening costs for multinational companies while providing the assurance that third parties have completed a thorough review administered by TRACE.
