It covers EU, US (OFAC), Canada and UN sanctions. Find out which specific sanctions are in place against a country by clicking on the continent and then on the country.
The ACSS member-only resource library contains guidance on sanctions from government agencies, international organizations, and universities and institutes around the world. The documents posted here do not include sanctions regimes or actions themselves; instead, these are publications of information intended to provide clarity regarding the implementation of sanctions.
ACSS Members get access to a unique premium resource built by ACSS: a searchable database of 900+ OFAC enforcement actions, across industries, with access to the PDFs of settlement letters.
Part of the ACSS member benefits is belonging to a Sanctions Discussion Group. Whether you are a starting or seasoned sanctions professional, the ACSS forum will help you get and stay connected to a network of resources you can rely on throughout the year.
