Program underwritten by Allied Solutions 

The U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) maintains over 25 different sanctions programs which vary widely in their requirements and can be highly technical. Because U.S. sanctions are a critical component of U.S. foreign policy and national security objectives, compliance is essential and penalties for noncompliance can be severe.

This webinar will provide you with a baseline understanding of OFAC’s numerous types of sanctions programs, expectations of OFAC and prudential regulators for maintaining an OFAC compliance program (hint – they go beyond just screening), best practices for compliance and pitfalls to avoid.
