Sanctions List Service

OFAC's Sanctions List Service (SLS) provides users with easy access to the most up-to-date Sanctions Lists and Sanctions list data ready for immediate download. Users can choose to download from either the Specially Designated Nationals (SDN) List or the Consolidated (non-SDNs) List. 

OFAC’s SLS also contains a new feature: the Customize Sanctions Dataset tool, allowing for users to create custom datasets based upon their selection of certain Sanctions lists and/ or Sanctions programs. Additionally, SLS now includes OFAC's Sanctions List Search application. This application is designed to facilitate the use of the Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons list ("SDN List") and other Non-SDN lists administered by OFAC.

The below cards can be used to access different parts of the Sanctions List Service (SLS) application. 


  • Specially Designated Nationals List

  • Non-SDN Consolidated Sanctions List

    To make it easier to comply with OFAC’s sanctions regulations, all non-SDN sanctions lists are consolidated in a set of separate data files. These consolidated files comply with all of OFAC’s existing data standards.

In addition to its list of Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons, OFAC maintains other sanctions lists. Please visit the Other OFAC Sanctions Lists page for more information about each list.


OFAC's Sanctions List Search tool employs fuzzy logic on its name search field to look for potential matches on the Specially Designated Nationals (SDN) List and on its Non-SDN Consolidated Sanctions List.
