Frequently Asked Questions

858. In certain cases, the names of the entities published in the Annex to E.O. 13959 or subsequently identified pursuant to E.O. 13959 as Communist Chinese military companies do not match the names of issuers of publicly traded securities.  How do I know which entity is subject to the prohibitions under E.O. 13959? 

Answer

The prohibitions in E.O. 13959 apply with respect to publicly traded securities (or any publicly traded securities that are derivative of, or are designed to provide investment exposure to, such securities) of an entity with a name that exactly or closely matches the name of an entity identified in the Annex to E.O. 13959 (effectively January 11, 2021) or subsequently identified pursuant to E.O. 13959 (effective 60 days subsequent to public notice).  To further implement E.O. 13959, OFAC has published a list on its website (PDF; CSV) containing the names of entities identified in or pursuant to E.O. 13959 as Communist Chinese military companies, along with additional identifying information where possible.  See FAQ 857 for additional information regarding subsidiaries of identified entities.
