OFAC Compliance Policy

Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Asset Control (OFAC)


The Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) administers and enforces economic sanctions imposed by the United States against foreign countries. Depending on the country, OFAC programs may freeze assets of embargoed countries, prohibit payment of funds to individuals and countries on the embargo list, or prohibit provision of services to countries subject to US sanctions.  These sanctions may require obtaining OFAC approval before conducting research or other activities in or involving the sanctioned country.  Some sanctions are more restrictive than others, and apply to the whole country, while others are specifically target  certain individuals or entities within a country.  Currently, sanctioned countries include the Balkans, Belarus, Burma, Cote D'Ivoire (Ivory Coast), Cuba, Democratic Republic of Congo, Iran, Iraq, Liberia, North Korea, Sudan, Syria, and Zimbabwe.  The list of sanctioned countries is updated periodically and is available here

Watch Rapport complies with The Office of Foreign Asset Control ("OFAC") Policy, and is unable to provide services to individuals who live in countries subject to certain sanctions. If you reside in Cuba, North Korea, or the Crimea region of Ukraine, Watch Rapport cannot conduct business with you.

Watch Rapport also cannot do business with individuals or with employees of employers listed on the Specially Designated Nationals ("SDNs") list, regardless of their location. If you attempt to register or place an order despite U.S. sanctions that prohibit Watch Rapport from doing business with you, we are legally required to cancel your registration or order. See the OFAC website for details and updates on current sanctions programs.
