Redesign of Treasury's Website Changes Links to SDN List and Other OFAC Sites
This weekend the Treasury Department unveiled a redesigned website. While that is not exactly news, the redesign process has changed the way that the website's files are structured, leading to some significant changes in the web address (URL) of commonly used websites, including the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) and the Specially Designated Nationals (SDN) List. As a result of these changes, it will be necessary for exporters, financial institutions and others that refer to the OFAC website to update their bookmarks and links to common OFAC resources.
Access to OFAC's main website and related information now appears in the "Resource Center" tab at the top of the page. After scrolling to "Resource Center" click "Financial Sanctions" on the drop down menu. This will take you the main OFAC website here:
Direct links to the SDN List and other OFAC resources can be accessed from this page.
SDN List: http://www.treasury.gov/resource-center/sanctions/SDN-List/Pages/default.aspx
Information on OFAC's Sanctions Programs: http://www.treasury.gov/resource-center/sanctions/Programs/Pages/Programs.aspx
Civil Penalties and Enforcement Information: http://www.treasury.gov/resource-center/sanctions/CivPen/Pages/civpen-index2.aspx
As a result of these changes, it will be necessary for BIS to update the link to the SDN List that is included on the agency's "List to Check" page.
Note that the links to information on OFAC's Iran sanctions program are not correct and currently lead to information on sanctions imposed on the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Treasury's web development team should be updating the Iran-related links soon.
Update: OFAC has now corrected the links and other information on the Iran sanctions program page.
