Real-Time Foreign Sanctions Evaders (FSE) List API

Identify, validate, verify, and disapprove entities and individuals engaging in evading the U.S. sanction protocols in real-time.

How Does The Compliancely Foreign Sanctions Evaders List Work?

The federal agencies of the U.S. issue sanctions to foreign nationals and entities from targeted countries for national security regulation purposes. U.S. nationals and U.S. entities are prohibited from associating with these sanctioned profiles.

If your business recently recruited someone from a designated foreign sanctioned country or if you plan on associating with a foreign entity, it is recommended that you validate and verify the identities of the individuals and entities to avoid associating with sanctioned foreign individuals and sanctions.

Most frequent questions and answers related to foreign sanctions evaders list.

The Foreign Sanctions Evaders List or the FSE List is a data list administered and controlled by the OFAC. FSE contains the identities of evaders (foreign individuals and entities) that attempted or conspired to violate the U.S. economic and financial sanctions.

It is a list of all foreign individuals and entities that are under the federal radar for violating the economic and financial sanctions of the U.S.

Engaging in commercial transactions with sanctioned profiles in any form would be considered a violation of the U.S. economic and financial sanctions and a threat to national security.

The FSE contains a list of foreign individuals and entities that are termed ‘evaders’ and have been identified for evading the U.S. economic and financial sanctions by engaging in transactions with sanctioned individuals.

Persons and entities within the U.S. are prohibited from engaging in any kind of trade, business, or commercial relationship with the sanctioned individuals and entities.

Disregarding the sanctions and continuing to engage with sanctioned profiles would imply legal and civil implications.

The FSE is a federal watch list maintained by the OFAC to protect the commercial, business, economic, and financial ecosystem of the U.S. from sanctioned foreign individuals and entities from targeted countries. These sanctioned profiles are deemed as a threat to the national security of the U.S.

Foreign evaders are known for conspiring, attempting, and facilitating transactions on behalf of other sanctioned parties to disrupt the economic and financial ecosystem of the U.S.

The FSE list helps businesses, self-employed professionals, and persons of the U.S. to prevent associating with Foreign Sanctions Evaders and sanctioned profiles.

Entities and individuals from targeted countries, such as Iran and Syria, are listed in the Foreign Sanctions Evaders List. Vetting an individual or an entity prior to onboarding with the FSE List will help you prevent engaging with evaders or sanctioned profiles in disguise.

It is dependent on the program tags under which the sanctions have been issued. If an individual or an entity is issued sanctions under, say, the Iran Sanctions Program tag, then the sanctioned profile will be listed in the FSE, and in the segregated subcategory of the OFAC’s Specially Designated Nationals (SDN) and the Blocked Persons List along with the relevant program tag.

The Department of Commerce maintains a separate list called the ‘Entities List’. It includes the identities of individuals, entities, and governments that are subject to license requirements for export privileges of goods, services, and technology. Persons in the U.S. are not prohibited from engaging in commercial transactions with the entities listed in the ‘Entities List’.

However, the Foreign Sanctions Evaders List of the OFAC is a more severe sanctions program, and the persons with the U.S. are prohibited from maintaining any kind of conduct with the Foreign Sanctions Evaders listed in the FSE list.

The sanctions apply to the foreign individuals and entities that have been targeted by the OFAC under certain program tags.

The ‘Evaders’ are the foreign parties who have attempted or conspired to violate the sanctions. Every individual and entity in the U.S. is prohibited from engaging with the Foreign Sanctions Evaders listed in the FSE list and hence, encouraged to verify the identities of profiles prior to onboarding for compliance.
