Global Sanctions and Watch Lists


Employment Screening Resources (ESR) offers three global sanction and watch list options that are recommended for any company that has a federal, state, or contractual mandate to check these foreign databases as well as those wishing to check the broadest range of international excluded parties and sanctions databases of those involved in or supporting terrorism and/or narcotics trafficking.

ESR Criminal Insight

ESR Criminal Insight search is a broad multi-state/multi-jurisdiction criminal database search and consists of criminal records, state level sex offender records and national and international watch lists. The watch list dataset includes nearly 200 state, federal and international sanction and exclusion watch lists to assist users in their compliance with the USA Patriot Act and watch lists as provided by states, U.S. and foreign governments.

Global Terrorist, Sanctions and Debarments Search Level 1

ESR’s Level 1 Global Terrorist and Sanction search is more far-reaching than the sources included in the ESR Criminal Insight report and expands to include a more expansive search of U.S. and global sanctions, terrorist watch lists, sex offender registries, enforcements and warnings from the United States, foreign governments and international watch list sources. This is an extensive search that includes information from the following sources:

Global Terrorist and Sanctions Search Level 2

ESR’s Level 2 Global Terrorist and Sanction search delivers the broadest range of international excluded parties, sanctions databases and those involved in or supporting terrorism and/or narcotics trafficking. Our most extensive product, it includes sanctions, enforcements and warnings from enforcement agencies, criminal courts and investigative news sources around the world. It also includes an expansive search of individuals and companies known or suspected to be affiliated with terrorism, animal rights, money laundering, drug trafficking, arms dealing, war crimes, white collar fraud, or other illegal activities, as well as "Politically Exposed Persons" (PEPs), their family members and close associates.
