“A U.S. person may not procure goods, services, or technology from, or engage in transactions with, a blocked person or entity directly or indirectly…regardless of whether such entities appear on OFAC’s Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons List (SDN List).”


Are you aware of your obligation to meet the requirements surrounding sanctioned party ownership screening?

A restricted and denied party screening solution that searches the published OFAC sanctions watch lists is the first step in your export, trade and financial compliance line of defense. However, government agencies from many jurisdictions also require that you do not do business with organizations that are owned—in whole or in part—by entities on those same watch lists.

Government agencies do not necessarily publish watch lists of these entities, so the burden of ensuring that you know your customer falls to you. With untold numbers of businesses changing hands every month, an ownership structure that is in place one month might not be the same in the next.

With Visual Compliance–Sanctioned Party Ownership Screening, from eCustoms, you’ll gain access to valuable information that will help you determine whether your potential business partners are owned or controlled by entities on OFAC and EU Sanction Lists.
