OFSI publishes the number of financial sanctions licences issued in its Annual Review which is publicly available from OFSI’s website. OFSI will publish the latest figures in the next Annual Review in due course.

OFSI does not publish the names of designated persons or applicants who have been granted specific licences. Licensing conditions are decided on a case-by-case basis.
