Responsible for enforcing economic and trade sanctions, the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) has enormous influence on AML/CTF programs, and meeting OFAC responsibilities can understandably induce more than a little stress in compliance officers. This webinar is aimed at reducing that anxiety by clearly outlining how to meet OFAC obligations, how OFAC’s disciplinary processes work, and how to productively deal with OFAC inquiries or requirements in areas like name matches, blocking and rejecting transactions, or the filing of reports with this all-important regulator.

  • Responding appropriately to OFAC inquiries to assure productive resolution of areas of concern
