On March 31, 2011, the Director of OFAC updated the information on OFAC's list of Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons of the following two entities affiliated with the Islamic Republic of Iran Shipping Lines (IRISL), identified three vessels as property of IRISL, updated 21 already-blocked IRISL vessels to identify new names or other information given to those vessels, and removed 10 vessels that were previously identified as property of IRISL.
