OFAC Compliance Policy

Last updated: April 2017

The Office of Foreign Assets Control ("OFAC") prohibits U.S. companies from engaging in unlicensed transactions with individuals who live in countries that are subject to certain sanctions. If you reside in Cuba, North Korea, or the Crimea region of the Ukraine, CFA Institute cannot conduct business with you. CFA Institute also cannot do business with Specially Designated Nationals ("SDNs") regardless of their location. If you attempt to register for a program despite U.S. sanctions that prohibit CFA Institute from doing business with you, we are legally required to cancel your registration and we cannot refund your payment. See the OFAC website for details and updates on current sanctions programs, including updates on OFAC’s recent Ukraine-related sanctions program.

Residents of Iran, Syria, and Sudan may enroll in CFA Institute’s programs pursuant to OFAC General License G (Iran), OFAC License SY-2013-299619-1 (Syria), and OFAC General License No. 1A (Sudan).
