White List Law and Legal Definition
A whitelist is a list or register of individuals or organizations approved for one reason or another, and who are being provided a particular privilege, service, mobility, access or recognition. The list may include the names of entities or persons who are suitable for a particular purpose such as a list of individuals who have security clearance with government officials and a labor union list of employers who maintain working conditions approved by the union. Such list is also known as approved list. On the other hand, blacklist is a compilation of entities that are denied, unrecognized, or ostracized.
