Complying with the U.S. Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) regulations on sanctions against foreign entities requires much more than checking a list of restricted companies and individuals. For example, the latest rules require digging deeper by considering a company’s “combined ownership of more than 50% by sanctioned parties.” Further, non-list based requirements may also present potential compliance pitfalls.

The good news is, you have tools at your disposal. Getting updated information on sanctions rules and associated entities—coupled with the right screening technology—can help your organization avoid both the risk of fines and of the cost of devoting too many resources to compliance.
