BlackList is a list of all companies, organizations and figures who originate from Iran.
GrayList is a list of all companies, organizations and figures out of Iranian borders, and doing business with Iran.
We identify risk of entities by COLOR selection, each color marks the risk level of the entity.(by declining order)

Entities affiliated with Designated / Sanctioned / Illicit entities.
Entities sanctioned in the past for Terror or Illicit activities / WMD related / Human rights violations.
Entities in a problematic sector - Sector controlled by the Top Alert entities.
Legitimate entities - we cannot determine whether an entity is completely green, and that is due to the facts that the Iranian economy is not transparent enough for us. Be sure.
