- On September 10, 2008, the Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) added new entries to its Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons (SDN) list under the category of Nonproliferation Weapons of Mass Destruction (NPWMD).
- Additionally, blocked vessels are being segregated into a separate section on the Master list of Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons. Banks are now instructed to reject any funds transfer referencing a blocked vessel and must notify OFAC.
- A complete list of additions is attached.
- OFAC information also may be found on the Internet at http://www.treas.gov/offices/enforcement/ofac.
