OFAC's new Framework for Sanctions Compliance Programs is a game changer. When it comes to sanctions compliance programs, most companies are well behind the curve. OFAC’s new framework raises the bar by creating a well-crafted framework for companies to assess their current program and then re-design important elements to meet OFAC's standards.
