Russia on OFAC Country Sanction List


Avalon would like to remind you that as of February 22, 2022, the Department of Treasury Office of Foreign Asset Control issued Directive 1A Under Executive Order 14024. They also issued Russia-related General License 2 and General License 3. As such, please be aware that Russia has been added to the OFAC Sanctions Program List.

We urge you to visit the U.S. Department of the Treasury's Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons List website. You are able to read and review FAQs, Interpretive Guidance and Guidance on OFAC Licensing Policy.

Please note that effective immediately, all cargo insurance requests to Russia will require OFAC screening of the parties along with approval from the cargo insurance underwriters. This will require copies of the commercial invoices, packing lists and bills of lading.

Please make sure you adjust your processes accordingly. Avalon is here to assist you. If you have any questions regarding this matter, please contact your Avalon representative.
