OFAC Compliance Policy

Last Updated: 21 Apr 2021

As a U.S. corporation, CFA Institute complies with the rules and regulations of the U.S. Department of Treasury’s Office of Foreign Asset Control ("OFAC") that prohibit U.S. institutions from doing business in certain countries and with certain individuals and entities. 

CFA Institute is unable to provide services to individuals who live in countries subject to certain sanctions. If you reside in Cuba, North Korea, Syria or the Crimea region of Ukraine, CFA Institute cannot conduct business with you. Residents of Iran may enroll in CFA Institute’s programs pursuant to our special license.

CFA Institute also cannot do business with individuals or employees of entities included on the Specially Designated Nationals ("SDN") list, regardless of their location. We advise potential candidates employed outside of the United States to check the OFAC SDN list for their employer’s name before registering for a CFA Institute program. 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.
