The Framework was expressly designed to provide “OFAC’s perspective on the essential components of a sanctions compliance program". The document also outlines how these elements will be considered in the event of an enforcement action, and analyzes the root causes of economic sanctions violations that OFAC has identified in its investigative process; hence, it is essential reading for all compliance professionals and its lessons must be incorporated into any effective compliance program. This seminar will cover the Framework itself and the lessons it provides for adapting sanctions compliance policies and procedures, as well as how the Framework should affect sanctions investigations and interactions with OFAC officials as part of the enforcement process.
We will cover the following during the webinar:
