The Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) is the name given to the division of the U.S. Department of the Treasury that is responsible for enforcing U.S. economic trade sanctions as prescribed by U.S. national foreign policy. As part of OFAC’s enforcement strategy, the office pays particular attention to countries and regimes suspected of plotting against or damaging U.S. national security. Under the power of OFAC, U.S. citizens are prohibited from engaging in business with individuals and organizations mentioned on the Specially Designated Nationals (SDN) List.
PEP LIST SCREENING
Financial Institutions are required to perform due diligence in transactions involving Politically Exposed Persons (PEPs). While there is not a global standard definition regarding PEPs, the term generally refers to foreign officials and senior foreign political figures. The first step toward compliance with the Know Your Customer (KYC) and Anti-Money Laundering regulations impacted by PEPs is identifying those individuals during the initial enrollment or transaction. CrowdEngine offers the flexibility to make the process of identifying PEPs easy.
EU AND UK SANCTIONS
The UK Government and European Union maintain consolidated lists of sanctions applied against individual, entities, and countries. While there is frequently overlap between these lists, as well as overlap with other sanctions, the EU and UK also may apply restrictive measures autonomously. In the UK, HM Treasury is responsible for maintaining financial sanctions, and the EU sanctions are maintained by the European Union External Action Service (EEAS). Companies doing business in the EU and/or UK, as well as those businesses transacting with EU and UK residents, need to screen against both sanctions lists to ensure that they are in compliance.
