Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons
Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) has amended its list of Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons.
On December 3, 2002, the Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) amended its list of Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons (SDNs) by adding names to its list of Specially Designated Global Terrorists (SDGTs). Revisions to the list of SDGTs are provided in the attachment.
OFAC has asked that we distribute the information to all FDIC-supervised institutions so records can be checked for accounts that are required to be blocked. OFAC information also may be found on the Internet at www.treas.gov/offices/enforcement/ofac/.
Please distribute this information to the appropriate personnel in your institution. For further information about Executive Orders, the list of blocked accounts or the procedures to block accounts, please call OFAC's Compliance Programs Division at 1-800-540-6322.
