FinCEN Advisories and OFAC Sanctioned Countries
Answer by Andy Zavoina, BOL Guru
Question: Do you have an updated list of the countries with FinCEN advisory warnings? Also, do you have a list of OFAC Sanctioned Countries? We have an OFAC Compliance program, but I would like to send a bulletin to all departments listing these countries.
Answer: The BOL Launch Pad has an OFAC section. You'll find this page very helpful as well as BOL emails advising you when an OFAC change has been made (which are sent to subscribers to the Compliance Briefings). The "OFAC Official Site" link here should also be very helpful. We are in the process of updating the OFAC Sanctions Matrix on the BOL OFAC page.
Sanctions programs currently apply to the following. Not that you need to see the actual sanctions program information for each to understand the nature and extent of the sanctions applicable to a particular group or country:
Summaries of the sanctions programs are available here.
- Burma (Myanmar)
- Diamond Trading
- Narcotics Trafficking
- North Korea
