BIS - Consolidated Screening List
Denied Persons List
- Individuals and entities that have been denied export privileges. Any dealings with a party on this list that would violate the terms of its denial order are prohibited.
- End-users who BIS has been unable to verify in prior transactions. The presence of a party on this list in a transaction is a “Red Flag” that should be resolved before proceeding with the transaction.
- Parties whose presence in a transaction can trigger a license requirement supplemental to those elsewhere in the Export Administration Regulations (EAR). The list specifies the license requirements and policies that apply to each listed party.
Military End User (MEU) List
- Parties whose presence in a transaction as a party to the transaction triggers a license requirement for any item subject to the EAR listed in supplement no. 2 to part 744. No license exceptions are available for exports, reexports or transfers (in-country) to listed entities on the MEU List for items specified in supplement no. 2 to part 744, except license exceptions for items authorized under the provisions of License Exception GOV set forth in § 740.11(b)(2)(i) and (ii) of the EAR. The license application procedure and license review policy for entities specified in supplement no. 2 to part 744 is specified in § 744.21(d) and (e).
BIS - Unverified List
The Unverified List includes names and countries of foreign persons who in the past were parties to a transaction with respect
to which BIS could not conduct a pre-license check (PLC) or a post-shipment verification (PSV) for reasons outside of the
U.S. Government’s control. Any transaction to which a listed person is a party will be deemed by BIS to raise a Red Flag
with respect to such transaction within the meaning of the guidance set forth in Supplement No. 3 to 15 C.F.R. Part 732.
The Red Flag; applies to the person on the Unverified List regardless of where the person is located in the country included
on the list.
BIS - Entity List
The Bureau of Industry and Security ("BIS") of the U.S. Department of Commerce maintains separate lists for the purposes
of the programs that it administers (including the Denied Persons List and the Entity List).
The Entity List consists of foreign end users who pose an unacceptable risk of diverting U.S. exports and the technology
they contain to alternate destinations for the development of weapons of mass destruction. Accordingly, U.S. exports to
those entities may require a license.
OFAC (SDN) Specially Designated Nationals List
The Office of Foreign Assets Control ("OFAC") of the US Department of the Treasury administers and enforces economic and
trade sanctions based on US foreign policy and national security goals against targeted foreign countries, terrorists, international
narcotics traffickers, and those engaged in activities related to the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction. OFAC
acts under Presidential wartime and national emergency powers, as well as authority granted by specific legislation, to
impose controls on transactions and freeze foreign assets under US jurisdiction. Many of the sanctions are based on United
Nations and other international mandates, are multilateral in scope, and involve close cooperation with allied governments.
OFAC CL - Consolidated Sanctions List Data Files (OFCL) List
In order to make it easier to comply with OFAC's sanctions regulations, the office is now offering all of its non-SDN sanctions lists (including the Non-SDN, Palestinian Legislative Council List "NS-PLC List", the Part 561 List, the Non-SDN Iran Sanctions Act List "NS-ISA List", the Foreign Sanctions Evaders List "FSE List", and the Sectoral Sanctions Identifications List "SSI List") in a consolidated set of data files "the Consolidated Sanctions List". These consolidated files comply with all OFAC's existing data standards. In the future, if OFAC creates a new non-SDN style list, the office will add the new data associated with that list to these consolidated data files if appropriate. While the consolidated sanctions list data files are not part of OFAC's list of Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons "the SDN List," the records in these consolidated files may also appear on the SDN List.

The goal of this consolidation effort is to reduce the number of list-related files that must be downloaded in order to maintain an automated sanctions screening program.
Included in the Consolidated Sanctions List Data Files:
- Foreign Sanctions Evaders (FSE) List
- Sectoral Sanctions Identifications (SSI) List
- Palestinian Legislative Council (NS-PLC) list
- The List of Foreign Financial Institutions Subject to Part 561 (the Part 561 List)
- Non-SDN Iranian Sanctions Act (NS-ISA) List
- List of Foreign Financial Institutions Subject to Correspondent Account or Payable-Through Account Sanctions (CAPTA List)
- Non-SDN Menu-Based Sanctions List (NS-MBS List)

HM Treasury Sanction List
All material relevant to HM Treasury's work in the area of financial sanctions.
Financial sanctions targets: list of all asset freeze targets.
UN Security Council Sanctions List
The UN Security Council Sanctions List includes all individuals and entities subject to sanctions measures imposed by the Security Council.
The inclusion of all names on one Consolidated Sanctions List is to facilitate the implementation of the measures, and neither implies that all names are listed under one regime, nor that the criteria for listing specific names are the same.
For each instance where the Security Council has decided to impose sanctions in response to a threat, a Security Council Committee manages the sanctions regime.
Each sanctions committee established by the United Nations Security Council therefore publishes the names of individuals and entities listed in relation to that committee as well as information concerning the specific measures that apply to each listed name.
Public Safety Canada - Listed Terrorist Entities
The listing of an entity is a public means of identifying a group or individual as being associated with terrorism. The definition of an entity includes a person, group, trust, partnership or fund, or an unincorporated association or organization. The Anti-Terrorism Act provides measures for the Government of Canada to create a list of entities.
It is not a crime to be listed. However, one of the consequences of being listed is that the entity's property can be the subject of seizure/restraint and/or forfeiture. In addition, institutions such as banks, brokerages, etc. are subject to reporting requirements with respect to an entity's property and must not allow those entities to access the property. These institutions may not deal or otherwise dispose of the property. It is an offence to knowingly participate in or contribute to, directly or indirectly, any activity of a terrorist group.
This participation is only an offence if its purpose is to enhance the ability of any terrorist group to facilitate or carry out a terrorist activity.
Consolidated Canadian Autonomous Sanctions List
The Consolidated Canadian Autonomous Sanctions List includes individuals and entities subject to specific sanctions regulations made under the Special Economic Measures Act (SEMA) and the Justice for Victims of Corrupt Foreign Officials Act (JVCFOA).
The inclusion of these names on this list is for administrative purposes only. The consolidated list is not a regulation, and it does not have force of law.
