OFAC administers and enforces economic and trade sanction programs against targeted foreign countries, terrorists, and drug traffickers, and other threats to the United States’ foreign policy interests.
OFAC keeps a list, the Specially Designated Nationals (SDN) List, of individuals and companies from targeted countries or that are involved with terrorism and narcotics trafficking. Before you make a sale at your dealership, OFAC requires you to check that your customer’s names are not on that list. Their assets are blocked and U.S. persons are generally prohibited from dealing with them. We’ve put together an OFAC Workflow so you know what to check and what happens if you find a match.
