Risk and Identity Data Sources

Signicat allows you to check and monitor customer data against more than 100 different national and commercial registries, for both natural persons and organisations.

Developer-friendly APIs

Signicat offers two Risk and Identity Data services, which are used for two different types of lookups: Information Service and Monitoring Service – each with corresponding APIs.

As with all Signicat APIs, these come complete with quick start guides, test data, developer dashboard and more.

  • Retrieve information about a customer or perform a one-time verification of the information they have provided. For example, you can confirm their address and business name, or find out whether they are a politically exposed person (PEP).

    Read the documentation

  • Receive periodic updates of changes to an individual's identifying data. If, for instance, a customer's address changes, you will be alerted.

Use cases for information lookups

Risk and identity data lookups can be used in many different cases, including:

  • Identity information for onboarding
  • Credit risk rating information
  • Identify the UBO of an organisation
  • PEP/sanction status of a person or organisation
  • Get the signatory rights of an organisation
