Government resources on sanctions

Two excellent resources on current sanctions regimes are those of the HM Treasury website and the US Treasury website.   Both provide individual sections on each sanctions regime that they maintain including financial sanctions, licensing arrangements, guidelines and FAQs.  A link to the relevant pages of those sites is included in the specific national sections found below on this page.

Members can check the sanctioned parties on two websites:

a) United Kingdom Treasury ( HMT): https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/financial-sanctions-consolidated-list-of-targets

b) United States Office of Foreign Asset Control ( OFAC):  ttp://www.treasury.gov/ofac/downloads/t11sdn.pdf
