CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER (also of interest to BSA Compliance Officer)
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 May 7, 2003, the Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) amended its list of Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons (SDNs) by amending three entries to its list of Specially Designated Global Terrorists (SDGTs). The amended entries are listed on the attached.
All of OFAC's SDN material has been updated accordingly, as has OFAC's program brochure on terrorism.
In addition, OFAC has made available in the "Interpretative Rulings" area of its Web site a redacted letter entitled "Internet Access to Informational Materials (Iran)" and assigned Ruling Number 030430-FACRL-IA-04 to it.
OFAC has asked that we distribute this 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.
Distribution: FDIC-Supervised Banks (Commercial and Savings)
