The Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Asset Control (OFAC) frequently amends its listing of Specially Designated Narcotics Traffickers (SDNTKs).
OFAC has added seven SDNTKs to its list of Narcotics Traffickers. Their assets must be blocked immediately. For complete details, OFAC’s web site is: www.treas.gov/ofac (opens new window) or for fax-on-demand service (202/622-0077). Credit unions that do not have access to the Internet can call OFAC compliance at: 1-800-540- 6322.
In the future, we will continue to provide you with periodic amendments or updates to the list, however, since orders requiring blocking or freezing of assets are immediate upon publication on OFAC’s web site, you should periodically check the web site for updates.
