Sanctions Compliance: understanding the role of indirect ownership and control

Indirect Ownership & Control

To comply with sanctions rules, you must consider ownership and control of your customers and business partners – including indirect ownership and control, which can be difficult to determine.

Countries use sanctions as foreign policy tools. Sanctions can take a variety of forms, including travel bans, asset freezes, embargoes, capital restraints, and aid and trade restrictions. Doing business with a directly sanctioned entity poses risks, but entities can also be “indirectly” sanctioned, or sanctioned “by extension”, owing to their ownership or control. Identifying such entities can be complicated and time-consuming if you lack the proper systems and data.
