What is OFAC compliance?

The Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) is an office of the US Treasury responsible for outlining and prosecuting trade sanctions to support national security and protect against targeted individuals and entities, including foreign countries or individuals engaging in organized international crime. According to the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC), meeting OFAC compliance consists of: blocking accounts and other property of specific countries, entities, and individuals, as well as prohibiting or rejecting unlicensed trade and financial transactions.

Building your OFAC compliance program

In order to keep your organization on track to comply with OFAC regulations, it is recommended to start an OFAC compliance program, which calls for establishment and maintenance of a written program to meet compliance that takes into account the risks that your organization faces. For example, you need to consider the geographies in which you conduct business, customers you serve, or transactions you typically complete to determine to level of sophistication your program should include. Once you understand these risks to your organization, OFAC calls for policies and procedures to be established for reviewing your transactions and those involved.
