The Sanctions List currently contains the names of 252 individuals and 76 entities and was last updated on 6 July 2017, and supersedes all previous versions. The name of the List changed on 17 December 2015 with the adoption of resolution 2253 (2015). Further changes will be made to the ISIL (Da'esh) & Al-Qaida Sanctions List immediately following the relevant decision of the Committee. A press release documenting such changes will also be issued and posted in the "Press releases" section. The List is available in the PDF, XML and HTML formats.

In accordance with paragraph 49 of resolution 2253 (2015), the Committee makes accessible a narrative summary of reasons for the listing for individuals, groups, undertakings and entities included on the ISIL (Da'esh) & Al-Qaida Sanctions List.

The Committee works with INTERPOL to produce INTERPOL-United Nations Security Council Special Notices for listed individuals, groups, undertakings and entities. These notices promote information sharing and implementation of the measures among Member States.
