On 31 December 2020 at 11:00pm the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office updated the UK Sanctions List on GOV.UK. This list included details of those designated under regulations made under the Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Act 2018 (“Sanctions Act”). Following the publication of the UK Sanctions List, listing data on the Consolidated List will also be updated. Please note that the format of the Consolidated List has not be changed and it will continue to be published in its usual place here.
A Bridging Document has been published to assist users with processing the changes to the Consolidated List.
This Bridging Document is designed to facilitate sanctions screening as a result of the changes to the Consolidated List that required now the transition period has ended. To do this, only certain fields identified as administrative will be updated in the Bridging Document. The Bridging Document is a copy of the Consolidated List as published 10:59pm on 31 December 2020 (before the end of the transition period), with only certain administrative fields updated to reflect the changes made at 11:00pm.
The Bridging Document is provided to allow those who wish to do so, to screen separately against certain administrative fields, to minimise the number of flags on a re-screen of the full Consolidated List. Links to the Bridging Document in different formats can been found below.
The fields identified as administrative and which the Bridging Document reflects updates to are:
- Other Information
- Group Type
- Listed On
- Last Updated
While Group ID is considered an administrative field, please note we do not expect that these will be updated for existing listings.
The Bridging Document is not a substitute for the Consolidated List. Use of the Bridging Document is voluntary and is provided after engagement with stakeholders to assist with updating automated screening processes. It remains the responsibility of the person doing the sanctions screening to ensure that their screening is accurate.
For further information on the Bridging Document, see Bridging Document - Notice 31.12.2020
For further information on changes to the consolidated list, please see the Consolidated List – Change Notice-31.12.2020
