Due Diligence List

This collection includes most of the data collected by OpenSanctions which meets quality standards and would be useful to an analyst or journalist attempting to perform a due-diligence type task.

This list can be used as the broadest available OpenSanctions dataset. It includes any entity that should receive enhanced public scrutiny - either because they appear on a sanctions list, in a criminal context or as a political office holder.

Be advised that the data in this collection originates from a variety of sources and therefore varies in terms of detail and precision. For example, many listings of political office holders do not include their exact birth dates or full given names.
