Important Technical Notice for Users of the OFAC Website and Sanctions List Data Files

The US Department of Treasury is initiating the annual renewal of the public certificate securing www.treasury.gov website, including OFAC sanctions list downloads. The existing certificate (expiring September 9, 2021) will be replaced on September 1, 2021 at 9PM.
