About ACSS

The Association of Certified Sanctions Specialists

The Association of Certified Sanctions Specialists (ACSS) is a professional membership body for sanctions professionals worldwide. It was formed to advance sanctions compliance by supporting the professional development of the individuals who lead those efforts.

It aims to:

  • serve the professional interests of its members by delivering high quality services and promoting the interests of the profession
  • provide professional qualifications and set standards for sanctions practitioners
  • be an authoritative and respected voice promoting sanctions compliance
  • enhance the careers of sanctions professionals worldwide

Sanctions are profoundly complex in the international insurance market. The ACSS initiative fills an important need in promoting compliance expertise in this area.

Economic sanctions continue to be used with tremendous frequency by policymakers and the complexity of the measures, and the conflicts between them, is unprecedented. In this environment, specialized resources for sanctions professionals makes sense.
