US Sanctions can hit you anywhere and anytime, even if you are not in the US. It is especially important to stay up-to-date with the latest changes and get informed when these lists change.
The Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) has updated the SDN list (“Specially Designated Nationals”). The list includes individuals and companies who are subject to US security and sanctions because of terrorism or drug trafficking. Your assets are blocked and US persons are generally prohibited from handling them. Some of the latest updates are:
Cyber-related Designations; Foreign Interference in U.S. Election Designations
Counter Terrorism Designations; Venezuela-related Designation Update
Blocking Property of Certain Persons Associated with the International Criminal Court
Kingpin Act Designations, Designations Removals, and Designation Update
The updated version of the SDN list and an overview of the changes can be found on the OFAC website.
