On April 3, 2023, the U.S. Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control announced the new OFAC website which is now hosted on a new domain – OFAC.TREASURY.GOV.
In addition to the new location, OFAC has significantly enhanced the functionalities to improve user access and experience. The new landing page displays the most visited content more prominently and with the redesign, sanctions issues that members of the public most often need assistance with are displayed in the “I need help with…” section at the bottom of the page. OFAC has also enhanced the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) search capabilities, added a filter to the sanctions program page in an effort to make it easier for users to find and browse the content they need and has embedded a list of recent actions within each program page which includes the most recent three alerts displayed in a notice box on the right side of the document.
OFAC recognized that sudden changes to OFAC content location could negatively impact sanction compliance and list screening programs for users. Therefore, while the website changes continue, all OFAC list data will remain in its current location at https://www.treasury.gov/ofac/downloads/.
