OFAC Compliance

Help ensure OFAC compliance with OFAC screening solutions that can help prevent unlawful business with individuals and entities on OFAC watch lists, or in regions under sanctions and embargoes.


Every transaction that takes place in U.S. dollars is subject to Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) regulations, and there are stiff penalties for violations. OFAC compliance requires addressing multiple sanction and embargo programs to stem sponsorship of terrorism, narcotics trafficking, money laundering, the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, and other international security concerns.
