Commerce Dept Launches API for Searchable Consolidated Screening List

websiteThe Commerce Department has unveiled an application programming interface for the Consolidated Screening List to help U.S. companies easily locate and share information from the database in support of the “Open for Business Agenda” program.

The agency said Nov. 20 that software developers and designers can use the API to create tools that businesses can integrate with their processes to check the background of potential partners and ensure compliance with export regulations.

Commerce’s International Trade Administration and Bureau of Industry and Security worked with the departments of State and Treasury to develop the CSL API, which could receive an update in January 2015.

The public can also access CSL via the ITA Developer Portal as well as download CSL files via the Export.gov website, the Commerce Department said.

CSL is a streamlined list of more than 8,000 individuals, companies and other foreign entities that are red-flagged due to foreign policy or national security reasons.
