There are two primary conditions in the OFAC policy template. The first deals with the Specially Designated Nationals (SDN) list, and the second deals with general OFAC policy restrictions.
Described Content condition
The Described Content conditions are as follows:
OFAC Special Designated Nationals List and Recipients - Looks for a recipient with a country code matching entries from the OFAC SDN Country Codes dictionary in combination with a match of a keyword from the SDN List dictionary.
The SDN list refers to specific people or organizations that are subject to trade restrictions. The U.S. Treasury Department provides text files with specific names, last known addresses, and known aliases for these individuals and entities. However, the Treasury Department stipulates that the addresses may not be correct or current, and different locations do not change the restrictions against these people and organizations.
Communications to OFAC countries - Looks for a recipient with a country code matching entries from the OFAC Country Codes dictionary.
This condition provides guidance around the restrictions the U.S. Treasury Department has placed on general trade with specific countries. This is distinct from the SDN list, since individuals and organizations are not specified. The template looks for recipients that have the listed countries as the designated country code.
The included dictionaries are as follows:
OFAC SDN Country Codes
OFAC Country Codes
