Consolidated List of Targets
How often is the Treasury's consolidated list of targets updated?
The consolidated list is updated on the same day as the Treasury issues a financial sanctions Notification advising of additions, deletions or amendments to the list of individuals and entities targeted by the UN, EU and the UK. There is no predetermined timetable as it is dependent on the issuing of a Notification.
In what formats does the Treasury provide a consolidated list of targets?
The consolidated list of targets is available in the following formats:
- .HTML - A basic file format used on the Internet;

Does the European Union maintain its own consolidated list of targets?
Yes. The European Union has a consolidated list of sanctions targets available from its website. This includes names of individuals and entities that are listed in annexes to various EC Regulations.
Is the Treasury consolidated list of targets the same as that published by the European Union and the United States Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC)?
Not necessarily. The Treasury’s consolidated list consists of the names of targets that have been listed by the United Nations, European Union and the UK under legislation relating to a specific financial sanctions regime. Where there is a legal basis for an asset freeze in the UK, the name of the target will be included on the Treasury’s consolidated list. Lists provided by OFAC etc should include names listed under United Nations sanctions regimes but may not include names listed under European Union imposed sanction regimes. In addition, other lists may include names where domestic sanctions are in place. The European Union consolidated list only includes names of individuals and entities that are listed in annexes to various EC Regulations. This may well exclude any targets listed independently by the UK.
Does the Treasury have a web-based consolidated list search engine?
No. This is not currently available. Treasury website users must search the consolidated list manually. Most Microsoft programs have a search function to scan a given file or document.
