OFAC’s 50 Percent Rule—Uncovering the Complexities of Compliance

Join CSI and ACSS for a discussion on the challenges of screening lists for OFAC’s 50 Percent Rule and the complexities of the associated content that comes along with it. We will discuss an approach for gaining a better grasp on your customers’ identities that will result in a stronger compliance program.

At face value, OFAC’s 50 Percent Rule appears straightforward, but looks can be deceiving. Complying with this complex rule can prove to be quite complicated, in large part because OFAC does not publish a list of majority SDN-owned entities; that legwork is left to compliance teams to determine. Is your institution’s watch list screening program equipped to stand up to costly fines and the associated risk that comes along with this rule?

Key learning points:

  • Identifying the specifics on both OFAC’s and the EU’s 50% rule(s) and the challenges that come along with them
  • Reviewing recent updates to sanctions programs that have heightened the focus on these rules, and real-life examples of fines/actions that have resulted
  • Deploying practical steps for evaluating programs/policies/procedures to ensure you know your customers and who you are doing business with to optimize compliance efforts
