Students will study the FCPA’s components and jurisdiction, as well as the impact of the Act on U.S. exporters, importers, investors in foreign projects, and others subject to the FCPA. The course also thoroughly examines regulations of the Office of Foreign Asset control (OFAC) and their foundation in law. Included is an exploration of: Country-based and list-based Sanctions, Specially Designated Nations, Licenses, Reporting, and Recordkeeping. The focus of this course is on helping provide compliance professionals with a hands-on, working understanding of the practical aspects of the FCPA and OFAC to ensure the successful continuation of business in foreign markets.
