Topic Background:

As both US and global business aim to expand their growth, the world is looking for new markets, sectors, businesses and industries in which to peddle their goods and services. For both US and foreign organizations there is often a demand to export to countries of concern or even countries sanctioned by the US authorities in an attempt to promote market growth. US economic sanctions are designed to penalize the “bad guys”, typically those individuals or organizations who are affiliated with rogue political regimes or with other individuals or organizations that are involved in all sorts of reprehensible endeavors, including but not limited to narcotics cartels, terrorist organizations or the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction. Most of these sanctions are administered by the US Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC).

For organizations operating outside of the US, there is growing need to understand not only US sanctions, but those imposed by foreign nations. Companies are forced to gain transparency and have a comprehensive understanding of their international transactions before progressing with any US or foreign sales to those sanctioned parties and/or nation-states.
