A new report feature has been added to the EPLS referred to as the "Dashboard". This report feature may be accessed by clicking on the Dashboard link located under the Reports menu on the right side of the screen. The Dashboard contains 2 components: a Statistics component for viewing current (i.e., the current date) and historical (i.e., dates preceding the current date) Agency exclusion totals, and a Reports component for generating ad hoc reports. For detailed instructions on using the Dashboard, please read Section 3 of the EPLS Public User's Manual, which may be accessed by clicking the Public User's Manual link under the Resources menu on the right side of the screen. Please note that Adobe Flash Player version 9 is required to use the Dashboard.
The Department of Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets
Control (OFAC) List is now fully integrated in the
EPLS database, with Search and Report capabilities.
Users will no longer need to check separate lists
within the EPLS website to determine all excluded
parties. While this list has been fully integrated
into the EPLS database, it is also available at the
OFAC web site.
The OFAC List previously identified as the "Specially
Designated Nationals (SDN) and Blocked Persons List"
is now searchable through the EPLS Search Menu. A
separate search option is no longer needed to obtain
exclusions for the "SDN and Blocked Persons List." To
obtain a complete listing of OFAC exclusions only,
users can select the Agency option, then select
TREAS-Department of Treasury from the agency
selection box and click the Show Components button. A
list of Department of Treasury components will be
identified. Select component TREAS-OFAC-Office of
Foreign Assets Control from the list and click on the
Run button to execute the search. To view the list of
records retrieved, click on the Show button to
display the results or the Download button to
download the data in your system.
The Department of Commerce's Bureau of Industry and
Security (BIS) maintains two lists -- the "Denied
Persons List" and the "Entity List" for Contract
Officer consideration. For those transactions that
may involve exports from the United States or
reexports of U.S.-origin items, parties (including
U.S. Government officials) are encouraged to review
the Export Administration Regulations (15 C.F.R. 730
et. seq.) maintained by BIS ( www.bis.doc.gov). For
any questions regarding such matters, please contact
