In response to violations committed by U.S. persons as well as foreign organizations, the enforcement efforts of the Department of Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) have become more extensive. Some of the most significant OFAC enforcement actions this year include Eagle Shipping and Société Internationale de Télécommunications Aéronautiques (SITA) that were both assessed over $1 million civil penalties for their violations.
As the pace of OFAC’s enforcement actions continues to increase, stiffer probes and compliance requirements are expected to bring a complex and challenging landscape. Therefore, companies and their counsel must have comprehensive and up-to-date sanctions compliance programs to ensure maximum regulatory compliance and risk management.
