In 2017, we saw the introduction of the EU Sanctions Map website by the Estonian Presidency, which in due course will be administered by the Commission. The website provides detailed information and summaries of each of the regimes.

  •     Consolidated list of sanctions

The consolidated list of persons, groups and entities subject to EU financial sanctions cab be downloaded from the Financial Sanctions Database - FSF platform

In order to access the FSF platform you need to have an "EU Login" account.

Please follow the instructions provided on the EU Login page displayed when you click on the above link.
The former links to the sanction files are replaced by the FSF platform. However, to allow a smooth transition, they will still be available up to the 31st of March 2018. Please note this is not a Central Bank website and no questions regarding access should be directed to the Central Bank.

  •     FATF High-risk and non-cooperative jurisdictions

The FATF identifies jurisdictions with weak measures to combat money laundering and terrorist financing (AML/CFT) in two FATF public documents that are issued three times a year. The FATF’s process to publicly list countries with weak AML/CFT regimes has proved effective. As of November 2017, the FATF has reviewed over 80 countries and publicly identified 64 of them. Of these 64, 52 have since made the necessary reforms to address their AML/CFT weaknesses and have been removed from the process (see also, an overview of the jurisdictions currently identified in this process).

The Consolidated Sanctions List includes all individuals and entities subject to sanctions measures imposed by the Security Council. The inclusion of all names on one Consolidated Sanctions List is to facilitate the implementation of the measures, and implies neither that all names are listed under one regime, nor that the criteria for listing specific names are the same.
