- details of any connection with a currently listed individual or entity.
To the extent possible, the following specific information should be provided to allow for the positive identification of the individual or entity concerned by competent authorities:

II. Who is entitled to submit a delisting request?
Member States may at any time submit requests for delisting of individuals and entities inscribed on the 2140 Sanctions List.
A petitioner seeking to submit a request for delisting can do so either directly to the Focal Point for Delisting or through his/her State of residence or nationality.
A State can decide that as a rule, its nationals or residents should address their delisting requests directly to the Focal Point for Delisting.
III. What should be included in a delisting request to the Committee?
Delisting requests should contain the following information:
- explanation as to why the petitioner does not or no longer meets the Designating Criteria (in particular through countering the reasons for listing as stated in the publicly releasable portion of the statement of case for that particular individual or entity);
- the petitioner’s current occupation and/or activities, and any other relevant information;
- any documentation supporting the request can be referred to and/or attached together with the explanation of its relevance, where appropriate.
For a deceased individual, the petition shall be submitted either directly to the Committee by a State, or through the Focal Point for Delisting by his/her legal beneficiary, together with an official documentation certifying that status. The statement of case supporting the delisting request shall include the following information:
- death certificate or similar official documentation confirming the death;
- whether or not any legal beneficiary of the deceased’s estate or any joint owner of his /her assets is on the Sanctions Lists.
IV. How to make a delisting request?
For petitioners choosing to submit a petition to the Focal Point for Delisting, the relevant procedure can be accessed here.
If the petitioner submits the petition to the State of residence or nationality, the following procedure should be followed:
- The State to which a petition is submitted (the petitioned State) should review all relevant information and then approach bilaterally the designating State(s) to seek additional information and to hold consultations on the delisting request. In cases where listings are made directly by a resolution of the Security Council, the Committee assumes the role of the designating State(s);
- The designating State(s) may also request additional information from the petitioner’s State of nationality or residence. The petitioned and the designating State(s) may, as appropriate, consult with the Chair during the course of any such bilateral consultations;
- If, after reviewing any additional information, the petitioned State wishes to pursue a delisting request, it should seek to persuade the designating State(s) to submit jointly or separately a request for delisting to the Committee. The petitioned State may, without an accompanying request from the designating State(s), submit a request for delisting to the Committee.
V. Decision-making of the Committee
If the Committee approves the delisting request, the Secretariat shall, within one week after a name is removed from the List, notify the Permanent Mission of the State or States where the individual or entity is believed to be located and, in the case of individuals, the country of which the person is a national or resident (to the extent this information is known).
