Seven Steps to effectively address OFAC’s 50 percent rule and other emerging compliance requirements


Challenges and Opportunities in Emerging Compliance Requirements

Over the past 12 months, the U.S. has issued a flurry of new compliance rules aimed at preventing companies from unwittingly supporting the military in so-called “countries of concern”. These include the expansion of the Military End Use rule (MEU), the adoption of the Military Intelligence End Use list (MIEU), new due diligence and licensing obligations, and continued emphasis on not engaging with companies which has significant shareholding by denied parties, as per OFAC's 50 Percent rule and similar regulations.

How to Meet Emerging Compliance Requirements

The expectation is for companies to be more accountable in the compliance process than ever before. Take, for instance, U.S. and EU Sanctioned Ownership Screening requirements, including OFAC’s 50 percent rule. Other examples include the U.S. Military End User regulations, as well as continued promulgation of new sanctions.

Organizations face challenges with these emerging compliance requirements because governments are increasingly giving directional guidance, rather than explicit instructions, such as exact directives to screen against set denied parties lists. But effective compliance provides opportunities for business growth.
