 North Korea Designations; Democratic Republic of the Congo Designations, Counter Terrorism Designation Update


Today, the Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), along with the Departments of State and the U.S. Coast Guard, issued this update​ to the February 2018 sanctions advisory focused on North Korea’s illicit shipping practices.  This advisory alerts persons globally to deceptive shipping practices used by North Korea to evade sanctions, and provides industry with guidance to mitigate risk associated with these deceptive practices.  Since initial publication in February 2018, North Korea has continued to engage in illicit ship-to-ship transfers of refined petroleum, which exposes parties involved in the shipping industry, including insurers, flag registries, shipping companies, and financial institutions to significant sanctions risk.  The advisory contains new red flags and typologies for industry to be aware of, and provides an update on the deceptive shipping tactics used by North Korea.
