The U.S. Treasury’s Office of Foreign Asset Control (OFAC) recently updated its Specially Designated Nationals (SDN) list. The SDN list is a list of individuals and companies owned, controlled by, or acting for or on behalf of targeted countries. Also included on the list are non-country-specific individuals, groups and entities such as terrorist organizations. Any person or entity included on the SDN list has their assets blocked and U.S. citizens are prohibited from engaging with them.
Newest additions to the list include Qassim Abdullah Ali Ahmed following his designation as a terrorist; Profinet, a Russian shipping agency found to be supplying bunkers to North Korean vessels at Russian ports; and the National Iranian Oil Company. A number of Iranian entities have been re-sanctioned in connection with the U.S. withdrawing from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) in May.
