Screen, investigate and monitor vessels for illicit activity

dark vessel activity

With more stringent OFAC guidance and increased regulatory scrutiny, you can't afford to make mistakes, particularly when it comes to suspicious or illicit activities.

Seasearcher Advanced Risk & Compliance sees all, flagging compliance risks that matter, such as high-risk vessel port callings (including dark port callings), deviation from normal trade routes, loitering, AIS spoofing and probable dark ship to ship transfers, all available to download in one vessel compliance report.

New to Seasearcher: Identify AIS spoofing

AIS Spoofing screenshot

The maritime industry has witnessed an unprecedented rise in spoofing incidents in the recent months, with more and more vessels falsifying their AIS data to conceal their true location and evade international trade restrictions.

A new risk indicator now appears in Seasearcher Advanced Risk & Compliance to enable you to investigate potential spoofing incidents, quickly and easily. Our ground-breaking combination of machine-learning modelling and our vast AIS receiver network gives you the real source of truth.

Top 10 Classification Society​ Head of Legal

Bunker Holding

For dark activity, previously we would have to seek clarification from the customer and wait for a response. There was a lot of back and forth and often the answers could be incomplete. Now for most cases, we can investigate, obtain the full picture and resolve it by ourselves. This makes a really big difference.

The aims of OFAC are here to stay. Right now, pulling together evidence for sanctions cases, can take months, and even years. For example, in de-sanctioning cases, Lawyers are under pressure to get restrictions lifted as clients are unable to trade during investigations. Seaseacher Advanced Risk & Compliance could speed up investigations, reducing the time needed to just days or hours and could save clients from bankruptcy.

Seasearcher Advanced Risk & Compliance saves a lot of time because previously I was going to various different websites, like the OFAC US advisories and EU watchlists. Now it’s all in one place, so it’s very fast.
