Know Your Sanctions Lists - Denied Person List (Commerce)

This is the fourth post in a series of twelve covering the lists that make up the U.S. Government's Consolidated Screening ListECScreening includes access to the Consolidated Screening List as well as other sanctions lists and crucial value-adding features such as Recurring Searches, Search History, and Country Alerts.

The Denied Persons List (DPL) is administered by the U.S. Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS).  It lists individuals and entities, both U.S. and foreign, who are not allowed to participate in export transactions.  Denial orders are issued by Federal Register Notices and listed on the BIS website.  Individuals are often added to the Denied Persons List following convictions for export-related offenses.

The standard terms for a denial order are stated in Supplement No. 1 to Part 764 of the Export Administration Regulations (EAR).  The standard denial order includes, among other terms, a prohibition on the listed person participating directly or indirectly in any export subject to the EAR.  Orders also include a prohibition on any other person facilitating such exports.  The presence of a Denied Person anywhere in the supply chain or sales process may cause a transaction to be prohibited.

While such approval may be unlikely, BIS may authorize otherwise prohibited transactions involving a Denied Person under EAR §764(a)(2).
