Did you know?

Businesses that were assessed with heavy monetary penalties from OFAC
Studies reveal that 73% of businesses that were assessed with heavy monetary penalties from OFAC had no idea they were in breach and were dealing with vendors and suppliers under economic or trade sanctions by the US government. The rest identified the breach on their end before the government cracked down and avoided fines.

Why does this happen?

  • Most organizations rely on the Sanctions List Search tool, which fuzzy matches only on the “name” field.
  • Entities on OFAC blacklists are known to use name variations to bypass such checks.
  • Your vendor may have been blacklisted post-registration – regular checks are necessary.
  • Unstandardized and manually entered vendor registration data increases false negatives.

What is OFAC Matching?

The Office of Foreign Asset and Control (OFAC), a US Treasury Department division, creates blacklists of individuals and countries facing economic or trade sanctions to protect federal interests. For compliance purposes, organizations must match vendor lists, including individual transactions, against OFAC blacklists before doing business – or risk heavy penalties. Problem is, you won’t always have exact matches. Blacklisted vendors may be using pseudonyms, data could’ve been miskeyed in your vendor database – which means your data matching software may miss matches and breach regulations. Not with Data Ladder.
