Pole Star ACSS Landing Page - Association of Certified Sanctions Specialists
Pole Star is a leading maritime intelligence technology company, developing solutions to protect our customers’ vessels, people, reputation, and financial investments.

Since 1998, we have pushed the limits of innovation, working with governments and businesses across the supply chain to build solutions that are designed specifically to enable time-critical decisions and mitigate risk across all facets of maritime activity – from cross-border trade, to sustainability risk, to the monitoring of territorial waters, and everything in-between.

Pole Star’s regulatory technology, PurpleTRAC, automates complex risk management and compliance procedures by enabling instant sanctions screening and vessel activity investigations. The solution provides end-to-end maritime trade transparency by screening vessels, their ownership, management, and other associated entities against over 1,800+ sanctions watchlists across more than 90 jurisdictions globally.
