Know Your Sanctions Lists - Palestinian Legislative Council (PLC) List

ECScreening includes access to the Consolidated Screening List as well as other sanctions lists and crucial value-adding features such as Recurring Searches, Search History, and Country Alerts.
The Palestinian Legislative Council List
The Palestinian Legislative Council (PLC) List is administered by the U.S. Department of the Treasury, Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC). It identifies members of the Palestinian Legislative Council (the Palestinian Authority’s legislature), that were elected on the party slates of Hamas or any other Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO), Specially Designated Terrorist (SDT), or Specially Designated Global Terrorist (SDGT) when those members were not already named on OFAC’s SDN List. These entries are tagged as “NS-PLC” where the “NS” prefix stands for “non-SDN.”
This list is based on Section (b) of General License 4 (April 12, 2006) which was issued pursuant to the Global Terrorism Sanctions Regulations, the Terrorism Sanctions Regulations, and the Foreign Terrorist Organizations Sanctions Regulations.
Transactions with PLC members must be rejected by U.S. financial institutions. Persons on the PLC list may also be listed on OFAC’s SDN list under separate program tags.
