Which Restricted Party lists does U-M screen against?

The software U-M uses for the Restricted Party Screening process simultaneously searches the following restricted party lists, which are also combined in the U.S. government Consolidated Screening List.  The links below go to the federal web pages that further explain the purpose for each list and contain links to download the list.

Department of State (ITAR):

  • Nonproliferation Sanctions - Parties that have been sanctioned under various statutes regarding weapons proliferation. Note:  the Federal Register is the only official and complete listing for nonproliferation sanctions determinations
  • AECA Debarred List - Entities and individuals prohibited from participating directly or indirectly in the export of defense articles, including technical data, and defense services

Department of Commerce (EAR):

  • Denied Persons List - Individuals and entities that have been denied export privileges. Any dealings with a party on this list that violate the terms of denial are prohibited.
  • Unverified List - Individuals and entities who the U.S. Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) has been unable to verify in prior transactions. The presence of a party on this list does not necessarily mean that the transaction cannot go forward, but it is a "red flag" that must be resolved prior to proceeding with the export. 
  • Entity List - Parties whose presence in a transaction can trigger a license requirement supplemental to those elsewhere in the Export Administration Regulations (EAR). The individual listing specifies the requirements and policy for each party.

Department of Treasury (OFAC):

  • Sanctioned Program and Country InformationDetails the export controls restrictions (e.g., embargoes, targeted sanctions) to specific individuals, organizations, and countries
  • Specially Designated Nationals ListDetails individuals and companies owned or controlled by, or acting for or on behalf of, sanctioned countries. It also lists individuals, groups, and entities, such as terrorists and narcotics traffickers designated under OFAC sanction programs that are not country-specific.  Export Adminstration Regulations (EAR) require a license for exports or re-exports to any party on this list whose entry contains the following suffixes:  SDGT, SDT, FTO, IRAQ2, or NPWND.
