OFAC Sanctions List Service Application


OFAC has deployed its new Sanctions List Service (SLS).  SLS is now the primary application OFAC will use to deliver sanctions list files and data to the public.  The stated purpose of the service is to make list data more accessible to smaller firms.

OFAC's Sanctions List Service (SLS) provides users with 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.

SLS includes support for all OFAC legacy and modern sanctions list data files.

While certain sanctions list data are now hosted within the SLS cloud, existing links to OFAC list files remain functional through URL redirects.

The Sanctions List Service application incorporates the traditional OFAC Sanctions List Search tool which will continue to be available at


OFAC will have more information to share in the coming days.  Users in need of technical support should contact OFAC at O_F_A_C@treasury.gov.
