The Premier Platform for Managing Third Party Risk
TRACE's Third Party Management System is a scalable and easy to use platform for managing due diligence on an unlimited number of third party intermediaries. From assessing third party risk to monitoring relationships, the TPMS provides organizations of all sizes with a cost-effective solution for third party management. Housed within the TPMS are other essential compliance platforms provided by TRACE.
The TPMS is intuitively designed with the compliance officer in mind. Users can easily set up their fully customizable portal with multiple admin user types and sub-companies to match their unique business structure.
A key feature of the TPMS is the Intermediary Directory, a publicly searchable database of “pre-vetted” business partners worldwide. TRACE Certified Due Diligence reports for third parties in the Intermediary Directory are available upon request at no cost. TRACE members and due diligence customers benefit from additional search capabilities in the directory.
AUTOMATED THIRD PARTY RISK ASSESSMENT
TRACEsort makes it easy for organizations to collect and assess third party risk information through multilingual standard or customized questionnaires. The software integrates seamlessly with TRACE risk-based due diligence solutions, allowing users to designate risk tiers and initiate due diligence automatically upon completion of the assessment. TRACE Members enjoy complimentary access to TRACEsort.
DENIED PARTIES AND PEP SCREENING WITH SAME DAY RESULTS
TRACEbasic enables companies to cost-effectively screen large volumes of names against Denied Parties and Politically Exposed Persons (PEPs) databases and quickly identify individuals and entities that present a potential source of risk. Names are searched against hundreds of global regulatory, watch and sanctions lists.
BASELINE DUE DILIGENCE AND CONTINUOUS SCREENING
TRAC collects and assesses key business and ownership information and continuously screens names against international watch lists. Companies or individuals that have completed or renewed their TRAC profile within the last year are included in the TRAC Register, a searchable database of potential business partners.
MEDIA AND WATCHLIST SCREENING
Screen third parties against sanctions and government watch lists and assess their reputation through a review and analysis of online and print media with TRACE Reputational Due Diligence. The subject of the search is not contacted or involved in this screening. Multilingual due diligence analysts focus on identifying adverse information or indications of government affiliations and summarize findings in the final report.
FAST TRACK THE ON-BOARDING PROCESS FOR YOUR LOWER RISK THIRD PARTIES
TRACEcheck® is designed for lower risk third parties or as a first run due diligence review on a large number of intermediaries, such as the intermediaries of an acquisition target, to determine where further due diligence is necessary.
A detailed due diligence review THAT ELIMINATES SCREENING COSTS FOR MULTINATIONAL COMPANIES
TRACEcertification is the only comprehensive due diligence review, analysis and approval process available that allows third parties to own their verified compliance report. Certification by TRACE signifies that a company or individual has completed an intensive review that meets international requirements.

Intensive, On-the-Ground Due Diligence Investigation
Conducted by a senior TRACE attorney and due diligence analyst, this comprehensive, intelligence-gathering service builds a complete profile of the subject without outsourcing the review to an independent contractor and compromising the quality of the report. TRACEreview® offers an intensive, on-site review of higher risk relationships or relationships for which significant red flags have already been identified. It can also be used to audit third party relationships.
Custom Designed Due Diligence Reports
TRACEselect® allows companies to order separately priced components of a due diligence report, based on their compliance priorities and risk profile. This service is designed to help companies better manage their commercial intermediaries at all levels of risk and fulfill their unique compliance needs with one simple and cost-effective due diligence solution. Through the user-friendly TPMS, companies can order, track and view reports as well as manage intermediary relationships in a centralized platform.
Specialized Due Diligence for Mergers & Acquisitions
TRACE M&A’s service defines the target’s anti-corruption risk profile and identifies any red flags to adjust for any bribery risks or possible successor liability in the valuation, deal structure, transaction documents or ongoing due diligence process. Furthermore, the report contains a concise risk assessment so that the acquiror’s compliance program can be appropriately extended to cover the risks presented by the newly acquired business.
