The Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) is publishing its new Non-SDN Menu Based Sanctions (NS-MBS) List.  This publication by the Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) is designed as a reference tool  that identifies persons subject to certain non-blocking menu-based sanctions that have been imposed under statutory or other authorities, including certain sanctions described in Section 235 of the Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (CAATSA), as implemented by Executive Order 13849, and the Ukraine Freedom Support Act of 2014, as amended by CAATSA.  When blocking is chosen as a menu-based sanction and imposed on a person, that person is identified solely on OFAC’s List of Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons (SDN List).  Any other menu-based sanctions imposed on that person are also identified on the SDN List.

In addition, OFAC has updated the following lists:
