Red Flags (Continued)

From the archives….

In a previous post I discussed Red Flags to be aware of in export transactions. Here is more detail from the Bureau of Industry and Security about the Consolidated Screening List. The Department of Commerce lists that are included in the Consolidated Screening List are: Denied Persons List, Unverified List, and Entity List. For help with export compliance contact mitch@

Consolidated Screening List

Prior to taking any further actions, users are to consult the requirements of the specific list on which the company, entity or person is identified by reviewing the webpage of the agency responsible for such list. The links below will connect you to the specific webpage where additional information about how to use each specific list is contained.

Department of Commerce – Bureau of Industry and Security

  • Denied Persons List– Individuals and entities that have been denied export privileges. Any dealings with a party on this list that would violate the terms of its denial order are prohibited.
  • Unverified List – End-users who BIS has been unable to verify in prior transactions. The presence of a party on this list in a transaction is a “Red Flag” that should be resolved before proceeding with the transaction.
  • Entity List – Parties whose presence in a transaction can trigger a license requirement supplemental to those elsewhere in the Export Administration Regulations (EAR). The list specifies the license requirements and policy that apply to each listed party.
