 North Korea Designations; Publication of North Korea Vessel Advisory

The U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), with the Department of State and the U.S. Coast Guard, is issuing this advisory to alert persons globally to deceptive shipping practices used by North Korea to evade sanctions.  These practices may create significant sanctions risk for parties involved in the shipping industry, including insurers, flag registries, shipping companies, and financial institutions.  Parties subject to U.S. and/or United Nations (UN) sanctions should be aware of these practices in order to implement appropriate controls to ensure compliance with their legal requirements.​
