OFAC Enforcement Actions: Trends and Analysis

Date:  Thursday, June 21, 2018

Time:  12:00 PM – 01:15 PM EST (New York),
5:00 PM – 6:15 PM GMT (London), 6:00 PM – 7:15 PM CET (Amsterdam)

In its role as the U.S. sanctions enforcer, the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) has recently doled out a number of hefty fines for sanctions violations. In 2017 alone, OFAC imposed a fine of $2 million against ExxonMobil for violating Ukraine-Related Sanctions, as well as a $12 million fine against CSE Global Limited and CSE TransTel Pte Ltd, and a whopping $1.2 billion against ZTE Corporation for violation of the Iranian Transactions and Sanctions Regulations.

In this SanctionsAlert.com webinar, our expert speaker will discuss the recent trends in OFAC penalties, analyze specific cases that display these trends, and explain how your company can keep up to date with OFAC’s enforcement strategies.

You will learn:

  • Which companies have been subject to OFAC penalties for sanctions-related violations;
  • Trends in the size of penalties or settlements for sanctions-related violations;
  • Discussions of how specific cases reflect OFAC’s enforcement strategies; and
  • Insights into how OFAC’s enforcement strategies may have changed during the Trump Administration as compared to the Bush and Obama Administrations.
