OpenSanctions brings together an international database of sanctions lists, lists of politically exposed persons (PEPs), and parties excluded from government contracts in different countries. This data is otherwise difficult to query because it is published in a multitude of semi-structured formats across dozens of government websites. OpenSanctions collects the data and converts it into a well-defined and expressive format for easy use and integration into third-party systems. Learn more

Will you delete data about me?
OpenScreening, by its nature, includes data about many individuals - particularly those mentioned on international sanctions lists, those holding a public office, and those included in published criminal databases. We believe that processing and publishing this data is in the public interest.
If information about you is included in this site and you would like to see it removed, please contact the initial publisher of the information, e.g. the authority publishing the sanctions list, the law enforcement body etc. to discuss the removal of your information.
