Any business involved in international trade - whether importing, exporting or part of the supply chain - is faced with a rapidly changing regulatory environment. In particular, manufacturers, distributors, and SMEs need to keep up with the changing global sanctions due to the Russia Ukraine crisis.
Coriolis Technologies and the Institute of Export & International Trade (IOE&IT) have partnered to launch an online sanctions tracker to help businesses navigate the complexity of trading restrictions imposed on Russia, and Belarus, in the last few weeks.
The dynamic tool is free to use and covers US, EU and UK sanctions against companies and individuals, dual-use goods, and specifically sanctioned goods.
Unlike other static sanctions trackers in the market, the real-time sanctions tracker aggregates data directly from a range of global government sources, including UN, EU and UK dual-use goods lists, the UN, US and EU Consolidated Screening Lists, and US Sanctions List (OFAC), among others, before presenting the information in a dynamic, searchable database.
As new sanctions are released, new and relevant sources will be added to ensure that the most up to date and available information is present in the tracker.
Users can search the following:
- Dual-use goods
- US sanctioned persons
- US sanctioned companies
- UK sanctioned persons
- UK sanctioned companies
- EU sanctioned persons
- EU sanctioned companies
- OFAC sanctions - specially designated nationals
- OFAC sanctions – consolidated
- Sanctioned goods, including luxury goods, oil and gas

'Trade with confidence'
Institute of Export & International Trade director general, Marco Forgione said:
“It is imperative in times like these that traders have access to the right information, advice and guidance, to ensure that they comply with sanctions wherever they are in the world. The technology behind the Sanctions Tracker has been developed to help businesses ensure they do that.
“The IOE&IT is committed to supporting exporters to trade with confidence. Being able to access real time information on which sanctions will impact them will help keep legal trade flowing.”
