Comments and Definitions

Coverage:
Selected sanction programmes involving US OFAC SDN Lists (through US CSL List), EU Consolidated Sanction List, United Nations Sanctions and United Kingdom HMT Sanction Lists. Breakdown by sanction programme/regime where possible. Further lists to be added in the future.
Please note that for the analyzed US lists, the aggregated CSL list from the US Department of Commerce was considered, which includes OFAC lists, but has a different structure.
Updates:
At least every 24 hours. Higher update frequency possible on request.
Date/time reflects the date of data retrieval from the website of the respective regulator, unless otherwise noted. Please note that there may be time lags between OFAC published data and their availability in the CSL List of the U.S. Department of Commerce International | Trade Administration (ITA).
Methodology:
Meta data analysis for additions, changes and removals of entries conducted with GCRD methodology (delta comparison), based on sources as indicated above.
Please keep in mind, that a listed party can be subject to different sanctions programs/regimes on a consolidated list. Changes in the sanctions program affiliations of a listed party may be counted as 'change' (and not as additions to or removals from a certain program/regime), unless otherwise noted.

Changed [ I ]
Entry has changed. Meta information on changed datafields in most cases available.
Changed [ II ]

Please check possible relevance for your purpose in each case.
Changes may incude for example:
UK HMT Sanction Lists: Leading zeros or leading/trailing blanks in data fields such as 'ni_number', 'passport_details' or 'addresses'.
UN Sanction Lists: Leading zeros or leading/trailing blanks in data fields.
US Sanction Lists: Data field 'Source List Url' (through US CSL List).
EU Sanction Lists: Data field 'pdf_link'.
In addition, these changes may include spelling variations regarding small and capital letters or special characters.
