This training program will focus on what your company needs to know and do about laws and regulations within and outside the US regarding individuals and entities that you are prohibited from doing business with. These individuals and entities are sometimes referred to as denied, debarred, excluded or restricted parties. Contrary to the idea that these laws and regulations apply only to financial institutions, they, in fact, apply to all types of organizations. This session will identify the parts of your organization that need to be aware of the issues, the necessary controls and the steps you should take to avoid compliance issues, penalties and lawsuits.

Why Should You Attend:

Many are under the impression that the Office of Financial Assets Control (OFAC) was put in place after the 2001 terrorist attacks on the US. However, OFAC, its predecessor organizations and requirements have been in place for nearly 100 years. There are others laws and regulations that restrict who your organization is allowed to do business with and the types of transactions that are not allowed nor need approval. Many parts of your company are subject to compliance including treasury, accounts payable, purchasing, sales, investments and payroll.

This webinar will provide a background on OFAC and related laws and regulations. It will provide step by step processes and procedures to ensure that your company is in compliance including weak, good, better and best practices for various departments.

Topic Background:

Compliance with OFAC and other denied, debarred, excluded and restricted parties has become more important as the number and types of terrorist threats has increased. While many organizations are aware of the problems, keeping up to date with changing requirements is difficult. Full compliance is often lacking. Fines and penalties are significant and public disclosure can have adverse impact on your company.
