The global sanctions landscape is more complex and challenging than ever before as regulatory scrutiny continues to rise. According to Accuity’s Sanctions Pulse infographic, major regulators (including OFAC, EU, UN) updated their sanctions lists 210 times in 2020, and sanctions violation fines issued by OFAC alone exceeded $1.3 billion in the past two years.

Compliance professionals from both financial institutions and non-financial institutions face significant sanctions-related challenges. They need to ensure that they have sanction compliance programs in place and these compliance programs are robust. Doing so will provide built-in mechanism to assess an entity’s compliance program before conducting business with them.
