These sanctions target certain foreign countries, regimes, terrorists, international narcotics traffickers as well as those engaged in activities related to the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction. The OFAC requirements change, through authority under presidential national emergency powers and through specific legislation, as frequently as world crises develop.
