Specially Designated Nationals And Blocked Persons List (SDN) Human Readable Lists

Sanctions List Service

OFAC has released an early version of its new Sanctions List Service (SLS) application. In the near future, OFAC will transition to SLS as the primary method for delivering sanctions list files and data to the public. In addition to providing sanctions list information in OFAC’s standard formats, SLS will also allow users to retrieve custom list data in a number of different layouts. This retrieval can be done either via the SLS user interface or through the use of an application programming interface (API).

As part of its enforcement efforts, OFAC publishes a list of individuals and companies owned or controlled by, or acting for or on behalf of, targeted countries. It also lists individuals, groups, and entities, such as terrorists and narcotics traffickers designated under programs that are not country-specific. Collectively, such individuals and companies are called "Specially Designated Nationals" or "SDNs." Their assets are blocked and U.S. persons are generally prohibited from dealing with them.  View more information on Treasury's Sanctions Programs
