Sanction is a term that is often used when referring to databases like ours. I’m often asked “do you have a sanction database?” or “is this a sanction check?”

We do have sanctions in our dataset. For example, Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) has many lists of sanctioned individuals. However, it’s a common misconception that an entire dataset like ours is a Sanction Database or Sanction search. Sanctions usually refer to Financial Sanctions. Financial Sanctions are restrictive measures imposed on individuals or entities in an effort to curtail their activities and to exert pressure and influence on them.
