OFAC's Compliance Framework - What It Means for Companies and Enforcement
OFAC's Compliance Framework - What It Means for Companies and Enforcement By issuing the Framework for OFAC Compliance Commitments, the U.S. Department of Treasury, Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) now has provided guidance regarding what it considers an effective Sanctions Compliance Program (SCP) to consist of, putting companies on notice of its expectations and signaling that OFAC may impose changes on a company's SCP if it finds it to be deficient. The guidance, which is the most detailed OFAC commentary to date regarding the essentials of an SCP, sets out several key factors comprising an SCP, including management commitment, risk assessment, internal controls, auditing and testing, and training. OFAC notes that an SCP should be continuously updated in response to the dynamic nature of sanctions and in order to ensure that the SCP is functioning as designed. Thus far in 2019, OFAC has issued a flurry of enforcement actions and settlement agreements across a wide range of industries, and it has now indicated that the existence of an SCP will be a factor it considers in determining whether and to what extent to impose penalties in the event of sanctions violations, drawing a direct connection between a company's effort at compliance and its exposure to enforcement.
