US Trade Consolidated Screening List (CSL)

The Consolidated Screening List (CSL) is a list of parties for which the United States Government maintains restrictions on certain exports, reexports, or transfers of items.

Sources included:

  • Denied Persons List - Individuals and entities that have been denied export privileges. Any dealings with a party on this list that would violate the terms of its denial order are prohibited.
  • Unverified List - End-users who BIS has been unable to verify in prior transactions. The presence of a party on this list in a transaction is a “Red Flag” that should be resolved before proceeding with the transaction.
  • Entity List - Parties whose presence in a transaction can trigger a license requirement supplemental to those elsewhere in the Export Administration Regulations (EAR). The list specifies the license requirements and policies that apply to each listed party.
  • Military End User (MEU) List - Parties whose presence in a transaction as a party to the transaction triggers a license requirement for any item subject to the EAR listed in supplement no. 2 to part 744. No license exceptions are available for exports, reexports or transfers (in-country) to listed entities on the MEU List for items specified in supplement no. 2 to part 744, except license exceptions for items authorized under the provisions of License Exception GOV set forth in § 740.11(b)(2)(i) and (ii) of the EAR. The license application procedure and license review policy for entities specified in supplement no. 2 to part 744 is specified in § 744.21(d) and (e).
