Real-Time Denied Persons List CHECK

Identify high-risk profiles by validating the identities against the Department of Commerce’s Denied Persons List.

How Does Compliancely’s Denied Persons List Check Work?

The Department of Commerce issues denial orders to certain parties that are violating the national security regulations. These denial orders are routinely published in the Federal Register to officially announce that export operations with certain individuals and entities are off-limits. Businesses within the U.S. are prohibited from associating with the denied parties.

Compliancely helps you identify and validate individuals listed in the DPL database in real-time, allowing you to reject or disengage with such high-risk profiles. It is essential to note that engaging with a denied party is treated as a federal offence. You could face federal charges, penalty assessments, and even imprisonment for engaging in export activities with these parties.
