Below is a link to a downloadable file that consolidates export screening lists of the Departments of Commerce, State and the Treasury into one spreadsheet as an aide to industry in conducting electronic screens of potential parties to regulated transactions. In the event that a company, entity or person on the list appears to match a party potentially involved in your export transaction, additional due diligence should be conducted before proceeding. There may be a strict export prohibition, requirement for seeking a license application, evaluation of the end-use or user to ensure it does not result in an activity prohibited by any U.S. export regulations, or other restriction.
Prior to taking any further actions, users are to consult the requirements of the specific list on which the company, entity or person is identified by reviewing the webpage of the agency responsible for such list. The links below will connect you to the specific webpage where additional information about how to use each specific list is contained. These links are also embedded into the file for each listed entity to direct you to the proper website for information about how to resolve the issue. Note that the column on the attached file, which is titled “Source List”, indicates which specific consolidated screening list is the source for each entry on the spreadsheet. Blank data fields in the file are not applicable to the consolidated screening list in the “Source List” column.
Instructions for Use: The consolidated screening list is a list of parties for which the United States Government maintains restrictions on certain exports, reexports or transfers of items. If one of the agency lists noted above has been updated and this downloadable consolidated list file has not yet been updated, the date on the top row in these files will not match the date of last update on the appropriate agency website. If this occurs, the user must check the appropriate agency webpage for the most current party information. If a party to your transaction matches a party name on the consolidated list, the user must check the official publication of restricted parties in the Federal Register or the official lists of restricted parties maintained on the web sites of the Departments of Commerce, State and the Treasury to ensure full compliance with all of the terms and conditions of the restrictions placed on the parties on this list.
If you have any questions related to the content of the information in the consolidated list, please refer them to the appropriate agency responsible for the list as indicated in the “Source List” field.
Are you interested in a simpler and faster way to get important screening information? The U.S. government agencies listed above have collectively built an Application Programming Interface (API) that enables computers to freely access the Consolidated Screening List (CSL) in an open, machine-readable format. From this API, any company can build a search engine to quickly find names, aliases, and other screening information. The agencies have built a CSL Search Engine that works with the CSL API that allows you to type in a name, country, or source agency to perform the search. The CSL used in these enhanced products has been expanded to include 3 additional lists. For more information, click here for the Simple Search Alternative (Best Viewed in Chrome and Firefox).
The date listed at the bottom of this page does not always reflect the date of the posting of the most current consolidated screening list. For the date of the consolidated screening list, users should click on the file(s) and note the date in the top line of that file.
