Q:  I am looking for the terrorist list on your web site so I can bring my company in compliance with U.S. law. Where can I find this list?
 
A:   OFAC's regulations are broader than the specific laws that deal with the terrorists and persons who support them. All individuals and entities that fall under U.S. jurisdiction should use OFAC's list of Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons (“SDN List”). This list includes designated terrorists and is available on OFAC's website. It is important to note that some OFAC sanctions, such as those pertaining to Iran, Sudan, and Cuba, apply to persons acting on behalf of those targeted governments even if those persons do not appear on the SDN list. It is also important to note that OFAC's Cuba sanctions prohibit most transactions with Cuban nationals, wherever located. U.S. persons are expected to exercise due diligence in determining whether any such persons are involved in a proposed transaction. [01-15-15]
