Iran and E.O. 13599

The U.S. Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) took a number of actions in connection with the full re-imposition of sanctions on Iran. OFAC has confirmed that persons and associated blocked property that were previously identified on the Executive Order (E.O.) 13599 List have been moved to the SDN List.  OFAC has removed the E.O. 13599 List from its website.

Descartes MK Denied Party Screening (DPS) introduced the list code IRAN in 2016 to identify individuals and entities under the (EO) 13599. 
As of today, Descartes MK Denied Party Screening (DPS) is retiring the list code “IRAN”. Individuals and Entities that were previously identified under the List Code IRAN has been moved over to SDNR (Specially Designated National, Iran).  

Depending on your settings you will see a delisted entry under the code IRAN which will contain this note “Persons and associated blocked property that were previously identified under list code IRAN have been moved to the SDNR list.”   As stated there will be an active entry under SDNR or other appropriate codes. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please email servicedesk@descartes.com with MK DPS in the subject.
