The Office of Financial Sanctions Implementation (OFSI) publishes a list of all those subject to financial sanctions imposed by the UK which it keeps updated.

The UK sanctions list suffers from very bad data quality as the result of manual data processing and inappropriate data structures used by the XML files.
