OFAC Debuts a new list: Foreign Sanctions Evaders (FSE)

Here's the OFAC Notice, in its entirety:

Identification of Foreign Sanctions Evaders and the Publication of a New Foreign Sanctions Evaders List

Today, the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) is introducing the Foreign Sanctions Evaders List (FSE List) to identify foreign persons sanctioned under Executive Order (E.O.) 13608, “Prohibiting Certain Transactions With and Suspending Entry Into the United States of Foreign Sanctions Evaders With Respect to Iran and Syria.”
This Foreign Sanctions Evaders List (“FSE List”) includes persons sanctioned pursuant to E.O. 13608 for engaging in conduct relating to the evasion of U.S. economic and financial sanctions with respect to Iran or Syria, which are identified, respectively, with the program tags [FSE-IR] and [FSE-SY]. U.S. persons are generally prohibited from all transactions or dealings, whether direct or indirect, involving persons identified on this FSE List in or related to any goods, services, or technology (1) in or intended for the United States, or (2) provided by or to United States persons, wherever located. As a result, transactions by U.S. persons or through the United States are prohibited if they involve the provision or procurement of goods or services, including financial services, or technology to or from a person on the FSE List without authorization from OFAC, unless the transaction is otherwise exempt from regulation under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (e.g., certain travel-related transactions).
E.O. 13608 does not require the blocking of property or interests in property, but persons sanctioned under E.O. 13608 may be persons whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to other authorities administered by OFAC. The FSE List entries for persons sanctioned under E.O. 13608 whose property and interests in property are blocked under other authorities include program tags for relevant blocking authorities (e.g., [ISA] or [EO13645]). Such persons are also presented in a segregated sub-section of the FSE List. (Separately, such persons are included on OFAC’s Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons List with program tags for relevant blocking authorities, as well as for E.O. 13608.)
The FSE List will be available in almost all of the same file formats as the SDN List. The layout of names on the FSE List will be identical to the layout of names on the SDN List. In addition, FSE List data files will follow existing SDN List data standards. FSE List files and data file specifications will be available on the FSE List page. The FSE List may also be accessed on OFAC’s ftp server (ofacftp.treas.gov) in the /fse_list directory. There is no predetermined timetable for when the FSE List will be updated. Names and other information will be added and removed as necessary and appropriate. You may sign up for email notifications for updates to the FSE List. Updates to the FSE List will also be published on the recent actions page of OFAC’s website and on the office’s RSS feed.
