In approximately 6 months, OFAC will cease issuing independent data files for the FSE List, the SSI List and the NS-PLC List. During the transition period, OFAC will produce these data on both the Consolidated Sanctions List and on the appropriate individual lists. The new Consolidated Sanctions List data files can be accessed on this page. In addition, the Consolidated Sanctions List data files are available on OFAC’s File Transfer Protocol (FTP) site at ftp://ofacftp.treas.gov in a folder called, “consolidated_list.” Please visit the Consolidated Sanctions List Specification file for the information about data file nomenclature, column headers and field widths. The XSD specification file for the XML version of the Consolidated Sanctions List may be found here.
OFAC will continue to provide and update independent human readable (.pdf and .txt) versions of the FSE, SSI, NS-ISA, NS-PLC and Part 561 lists and their respective archive of changes files. These file formats will not be affected by the creation of the consolidated data files and will continue to be available even after the transition period.
Some of OFAC’s non-SDN list products have never been offered in a data format before. Other non-SDN lists have not been updated recently and were produced by older information systems. As such, OFAC’s list consolidation effort has resulted in some minor administrative changes to the non-SDN list data. Below is a list of unique ID numbers (UIDs) that correspond to records that were modified during the consolidation.
For the Non-SDN Palestinian Legislative Counsel (NS-PLC) List:
An erroneous semicolon at the end of the following records has been removed: 9682, 9713, 9714, 9715, and 9716.
An address parsing error has been corrected for record 9646.
Certain versions of the NS-PLC delimited files appeared to be missing an alias (alias UID 9150) that was a transcription of the primary PLC record (UID 9639).
All NS-PLC records will appear in the consolidated list data format.
For the List of Foreign Financial Institutions Subject to Part 561 (Part 561 List)
The Part 561 List has never been offered in a data format before. This was due to the fact that each Part 561 record requires special, context-based treatment. In order to ensure that users of the consolidated list know how to treat a true hit on a 561 record, OFAC is adding the specific treatment text to the remarks field of all 561 records.
All Part 561 List records will appear in the consolidated list data format.
For the Iran Sanctions Act (ISA) List:
In order to differentiate records that appear on the ISA list from those that do not appear on the SDN list, OFAC recently renamed the stand-alone ISA list. It is now called the Non-SDN ISA list or NS-ISA List.
The NS-ISA List has never been offered in a data format before. In order to ensure that users of the consolidated list know how to treat a true hit on a NS-ISA record, OFAC recently added specific treatment text to the remarks field of all NS-ISA records.
All NS-ISA records will appear in the consolidated list data format.
For the Foreign Sanctions Evaders (FSE) List:
An erroneous comma in the addresses of the following records has been removed: 16545 (address UID 25004) and 16549 (address UID 25021).
All FSE records will appear in the consolidated list data format.
Upgrade to Sanctions List Search Tool:
OFAC has upgraded its Sanctions List Search tool to provide the users the ability to search for a name on the SDN List, on the Consolidated List, or on both lists simultaneously. By incorporating the Consolidated List, users will be able to look for potential name matches on the SSI, FSE, NS-PLC, NS-ISA and Part 561 lists. Sanctions List Search previously only included the SDN and FSE lists. Please see the related FAQs for additional information on algorithms, scoring, and other technical details regarding Sanctions List Search.
