This is part of the consolidation effort of OFAC's non-Specially Designated Nationals Lists to reduce the number of list-related files that must be downloaded in order to maintain an automated sanctions screening program. 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.
OFAC will continue to provide and update independent human readable (.pdf and .txt) versions of the FSE, SSI, NS-PLC, Non-SDN Iran Sanctions Act List, the Part 561 lists and their respective archive of changes files. These file formats were not be affected by the creation of the consolidated data files and will continue to be available even after the transition period.
OFAC understands that this change may impact automated FSE, SSI and PLC download processes and recommends that list users take immediate steps to alter these processes to utilize the consolidated non-SDN List data files.
This notice is meant to serve as a reminder about the announcement OFAC made on October 10, 2014.
