After screening a company and all its physical and moral persons attached, you may obtain a temporary Compliance score because false positives need to be managed.

This means that the screening resulted in “hits” that are not 100% match, and the tool is asking you to check one by one and validate, invalidate, or mitigate the risk.

When the window for false positives is opened, you will see:

At the top you will have tabs to show you for which Natural and Legal person you must manage false positives.

Then a reminder of the D&B enrichment data, as well as on the right side, a “G” for a quick search on Google. For a natural person, we highly invite you to use it as some data can be available on the web, but is not official, therefore not present on the D&B database (example of date of births). This will help you deal with false positives.

The list of potential matches will start with:

  • Relevance score: indueD’s % of matching between D&B data, and the screening provider’s data

  • DowJones-ID or Acuris ID: click on it to have the full information provided by the screening provider

  • DowJones Match Confidence or % match: the % of matching between D&B’s data and the screening provider’s data according to the screening provider

  • Matched name: Name on the screening provider that was matched

  • Primary name: Name of the person

  • Residency: where the person lives

  • Citizen

  • Jurisdiction

  • Date of birth

  • Gender

  • Risk

  • Title

  • Status: “for action”, “false positive”, “mitigated risk”, or “match confirmed”

  • Comment: you may type a comment to justify your choice, or it can be an automatic comment (if automatic false positive is done)

  • Type: physical person or company

Once you have managed false positive, your compliance score will be final.
